Springwatch at Cerdyn Villa…

Here at Cerdyn Villa we appear to have sublet our garage to a fair collection of our feathered friends

The swallow are setting up home in there again, they did so our first few years here but haven’t been back for some time.  in anticipation we always leave the door open

Hubby managed to set up a camera and catch them building their nest… looks like we might be grandparents soon !

As for the Blackbirds, here’s an update. family is doing well, kids are growing up fast, eating us out of house and home though, as teenagers do!

As for the sparrows you saw in a previous post, they all grew up and left home, mum and dad have started a second brood

….and yesterday, Hubby was sat having a wee drinkie in the garden and noticed the blue tits using one of our boxes in amongst the trees

We’re still trying to catch the wrens and robins on camera….

In our back yard….

Hubby has just pointed me in the direction of a folder on his computer titled “Cerdyn Villa wildlife”….

…. so I’ve had a peak

…and now I’m sharing some of the content with you… all of these have been seen in or from our garden

We do have more visitors: bull finches, tree creepers, crows, blackbirds, pheasants, red kites, buzzards, foxes, blackcaps, red starts , wrens… which he’s still trying to catch on his point and press camera…

In the meantime, did you spot the odd one out?!

Taking a breather…

You can’t beat a few moments of mindfulness at the end of a busy day

Life as a semi retired  (!) rural B&B owner, DIYer, gardener, decorator, car mechanic, and family diplomat can be pretty exhausting; but it’s all worthwhile when you can live somewhere like this and at the end of a long day, flop into a sunlounger with a pint of beer, a clear blue sky and the sounds of lambs and birds….

This hubby deserves his precious moments….

There’s nothing quite like this at the end of a long day
