We recently went on holiday to my home County of Somerset!….. We stayed with some friends at my Mum’s caravan on the coast, just next to my favourite place… the Quantocks….

 

There was kite flying, cider farm visiting, fossil hunting, steam train journeying, castle exploring, forest walking, animal stroking…… We even happened to be there at the summer solstice, and saw the sun go down whilst on the beach…. If I could, I would go back tomorrow!

………………………………In my bird box! 😀

 

I placed a bird box up earlier in the year, and I have had a great tit family move in! I was so excited, and since receiving a new camera for my birthday last month, I have managed to capture some happy snaps of the parents going to and from the box. I hope you enjoy these pictures of the birdies, and a few from my garden this year. 😀
