This first entry was from last night on the way to an Edinburgh to see a Science Festival show – we went to see Festival of the Spoken Nerd and on the way there I spotted a common buzzard just near Murrayfield Stadium. The show was excellent full of fun science ideas and a good amount of comedy.

Today wasn’t a great day for birdwatching instead a lot more DIY and when not doing that trying to stay off my feet as my ankle tendons are popping out a little too often, all very frustrating! On arriving home last night I took chewie out for a final visit to the garden and heard the wonderful call of a tawny owl. Here’s my garden bird list for today:
- Blackbird x 2
- Blue Tit x 2
- Carrion crow x 2 flying over
- Coal Tit x 1
- Dunnock x 3
- Long-tailed tit x 2 – they were around almost every time I was outside today.
- Magpie x 2
- Tawny Owl x 1 -heard only
- Woodpigeon x 4
