Well, I am officially through with staying in hotels (apart from one night in August when we are going to the festival of quilts), having spent two nights in Christchurch enjoying the usual view I get from my hotel rooms:

Christchurch was lovely though.

However, glad to be home and I noticed that every time I walked out the kitchen door there was an awful lot of cheeping going on.  It was definitely coming from the Winter Jasmine which climbs up the wall:

I watched a while and saw the robins flying out.  Further investigation revealed this:

Little Robin chicks!

Around the front of the house, in the porch, next to a nest that I think sparrows built earlier this year, the swallows are busy flying in and out.  So I clambered up the wall and took this:

All these little mouths to be fed!  We have a wasps building a nest under our bedroom eaves and the swallows seem to be picking them off every time they fly out.

Meanwhile the little gosling gets bigger everyday.  His (or her) parents and auntie take great care of him, never letting him out of their sight


So, lots to look at!
