Outside the area in Seamer near Stokesley. Strange record of a Gropper reeling yesterday evening clearly audible from my garden. I assume it was in a scruby field behind the Church Yard, past the sheep field. Also Yellowhammer, Stock Dove and Tree Sparrow (nesting) in the garden. The Stock Doves are nesting in the large garden behind the nursery for at least the 2nd year running. One or two generally turn up to feed on seed early morning and have been heard calling.

Just witnessed a male Sparrowhawk attempting to catch a Starling outside in my back garden on the patio - lots of noise but the Sparrowhawk flew off (empty handed so to speak) when it saw me and the Starling escaped unscathed! Also lots of Goldfinches and Greenfinches on the feeders and nightly visits from Hedgehogs. Just awaiting return of House Martins to reclaim the new nest they built last year.
