Well the race is on - me versus the garden. At the moment the garden is way out in front, despite my best efforts. Local birding doesnt help. Keeping tabs on the 'patch' and having a couple of gooduns turn up in the County (well almost in the county) takes time. I could be pruning, clipping, mowing etc instead of trying to photograph local Redstarts. There are a few major projects too, such as re re felting the shed roof. I know I've got to get it done before autumn migration gets into full swing so I've got to crack on but I know who's going to win in the end.
