Riddlesden Garden.

It seems as though a peak of activity has been reached in my garden. The sole survivor of 8 nestling Blue Tits left the birdbox this morning. I fear the cold May has been responsible for the high number of deaths. Jackdaws that have been  breeding (squatting) in my Owl Box are making an making  a huge din , I think they are ready to leave.  Other young birds are coming to the feeders for the first time, sometimes with adults feeding them .

At least 20 pairs of Swifts are using the viaduct as a nest site.
A pair of Oystercatchers are nesting on an old tractor tyre nearby.
