Return to normality

So, life begins post- ‘Orphean incident’. I won’t go into detail about the events of the middle of last week – for those wishing to get involved there is a Birdforum thread –  and instead wish to focus on the here and now. A brief but pleasant walk around Hackney Marshes in warm sunshine this morning produced plenty of evidence of successful local breeding, with juvenile Long-tailed Tits, Great Tits, Blackcaps and Robins present amongst others. Also a Kestrel was hunting over the racecourse. Despite a feeling that the summer doldrums have set in, it’s only a month or so before we can expect Med Gulls and the beginning of the return wader passage… plus an unequivocal national rarity perhaps?!
