Churchyard ornithology

What with the swift boxes being colonised by a typically aggressive pair of great tits and the incursion of a sparrow-hawk, trying to snatch a house sparrow from the roost in the hawthorn bush near to the door, there was much to notice this morning. Disturbing the marauding bird of prey I succumbed to sentimentality and threw a small pebble in its direction at its temporary station on the church roof. My lob had the desired effect, driving it back into the air, but also into the path of an angry pair of carrion crows, who then chased it off, making my gesture redundant.

Oh, yes first brimstone spotted yesterday!
