Just browsing a few blogs, following a few links, and came across a really fantastic idea to make a DIY hackle. Great photos, and very clear video of how to use it. Can't wait to give this a try!
We just sited the swifts, so Summer must be here. I thought I saw one last week, but it was only a single one. I'm assuming it's the same for swifts as for swallows - one swallow does not a summer make.
We have guests this weekend - David, Rob and Em, otherwise known as The Resistance. They are playing at the Cavern tonight. So John and the kids will have a fun evening.
