Monday 7th July
Heavy rain and thunderstorms were the order of the day. Large numbers of Swifts were seen racing ahead of the storm clouds in Barming. Lots of birds in the garden seemed agitated and I clocked up a count of 13 species in 20 minutes as the storm brewed. Unfortunately this included a Jay with Blackbird nestling in beak, the third to be predated by a jay in my garden this year.
