Guess Who Came For BreakFast?

DSCN1532 (2)This morning when I gave Jazz and Oby their breakfast I noticed  lots of small birds flying around my house. This is not an uncommon sight, since I live close to Pleasley Pit Nature Reserve and Country Park.  There are always lots of birds and  wild flowers to be admired.


 It was the sheer number of birds that caught my attention and their fascination with the eaves of my neighbour’s house. Although I love birds, I’m no expert. I think they’re from the ‘Martin’ family.

A special structure has been constructed, by the large lake in the park, to encourage Sand Martins and these maybe from there. Any ornithologists out there, please let me know if I’m right. 🙂

Sometimes they looked as if they were trying to make a home under the eaves. They stuck around for a couple of hours but they’ve all gone now. I wonder if they’ll come back tomorrow?DSCN1542 DSCN1543
