On the home front - the Cuckoo is back and I also found at least two pairs of Whitethroat nesting around the reedbed/sewage works across the railway from us. We have breeding Blackbirds either side of the back garden with chicks pre-fledging judging by the amount of food being ferried in. Linnets are conspicously paired up and a Mistle Thrush pair appears to be nesting at the end of our road. As I got no decent photos of any of the above I treat you to a male solitary bee and a fly. I am tour guiding on Mull for the next couple of weeks but hopefully we have Wifi and thus it should be pretty cool.
