among the branches and the weeds
Monday, 25 Jun 12 Cloudy 30°C / 86°F
Sitting under the walnut trees I’ve heard a whirr of wings. I’ve looked up and I have discovered that in a hole in the stonewall of the house there is a great tits’ nest. This hole is next of my window, so now I can see a continual coming and going of two tits with carterpillars in their bills.
Two years ago the hole was the nest of two redstars, then of a nuthatch (where is the nuthatch? … I haven’t seen it for a while).
Weeding around the lavender bushes I’ve found a toad, hidden among the weeds (and I have seen others in the wood).
