|Estate Management And So On

I walked round the fields to see if any of the trees had lost boughs to hurricane Gonzalo and none of them had- not even the ones that are half dead. |
Earlier this year we had lots of blue tits coming to the feeders, now we're down to one or two. I'm thinking the older birds will have died out and the juveniles moved to find territories of their own. We're seeing quite a lot of starlings- which is, it seems, contrary to national trends. I saw a piece in the paper this morning which said that wildlife- and starlings in particular- are being killed off by Prozac leeching into the food chain.
The weather is remarkably mild. Ailz says night time temperatures are equivalent to the day time norm for October. I wear a cap to go out but I've not been bothering with a coat.
