    A mouse yesterday playing between the tracks at Edgeware Road tube station.

    First swallow of the year in Over Haddon. Saw it swoop straight into my neighbours garage to check out a regular nest site. Isn't nature wonderful?
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    Three crows. One had a bit piece of food in its mouth, the other two were chasing and harassing it until eventually it dropped the food. Like being mugged on the way home from Tesco.

    Nature is indeed wonderful. I saw three hirundines today. I was driving and Iím 90% they were swallows but on a beautiful afternoon who cares?

    I’ve had a week of crows dropping various items down my chimney, a crow guard sorted them, but they did manage to deposit 2 carrier bags full of various twigs, slate, slices of bread, feathers and other crow pickings, to be honest, I’m amazed they managed to take off with the size of some of the stones, we could hear them bombing things down while we were lazing in bed in the mornings

    Barn owl quartering the ground yesterday, and something slate coloured and bird of prey-like and small too. Hobby or merlin? Again I couldnít tell. Then today a lizard without a tail on a fence post near Robin Hoodís Bay. Mrs Noel and the kids saw lots of seals on their beach walk near Ravenscar.

    Early for a hobby. If it was over / by fairly low moorland merlin sounds better bet. Otherwise maybe a small male sparrowhawk
