These were the first Goldcrests caught since 17th April; one at least was probably a failed breeder, already moving around as she had a big brood patch but the other, also a female showed no signs of breeding so was probably a late migrant.
The day's other main bird news was a/the Black Woodpecker making another appearance, flying east across the front field in front of Gert and Benny early morning - I missed it by roughly 10 seconds (imagine how annoyed I would be if I hadn't seen the one earlier in May!). Who knows if its the same lingering individual, logic would suggest it probably is.
We had a large visiting group of ex-teachers from Nykøbing today; they unfortunately arrived after the dawn rush but they all got to see a few birds in the hand and hopefully enjoyed themselves seeing what happens here - a very civilised affair as well, here they are partaking in coffee and biscuits!
This wasp was dragging this poor paralysed spider up the side of the house this afternoon - just needed a David Attenborough narration in the background!
