I have kept a close watch on the garden over the last few weeks as we often get migrant birds passing through at this time of year. I noticed an unusual bird foraging amongst the shrubs this morning and grabbed the binoculars. I was pleased to see not just one but two chiffchaffs in the garden. They foraged for over 15 minutes and I was able to get into the garden and get good views of them.
I spent about twenty minutes this afternoon trying to get some photos of hoverflies and a speckled wood in the garden. Eventually, the speckled wood stopped still for long enough for me to get a couple of photos.
