A short update about the garden and the broody birds in it. The swallow babies are starting to fly out, and they survived all four up till now (had a good talk with Peggy....). The black bird babies have opened their eyes and start to get feathers. Mum and dad are still going strong with the feeding. The climbing rose is now at his top, and I assume there is a nest of song-thrushes in it because they fly and go in it.
