    Swallow numbers look more healthy after what looked like just two pairs arriving initially.
    Two broods have flown of four and three youngsters.

    Lapwing numbers seem to have crashed here, which seems odd as there are more Curlews than ever, and we have a new population of Oystercatchers despite being about 12 miles inland.

    Can't fault NatWest with account charge usually under 10/month and often only 5.
    Since all their branches are now about 200 miles away the odd cheque still received can go in at the PO.

    If you have jump leads try one from negative terminal to a bright part of frame.
