Friday at last

It's been a rather uneventful week which has made it seem very long.
On the wildlife watch we've had a pair of adult tree sparrows feeding a brood of three fledglings, one of the adults has even been coming to the nut feeder hanging outside the office window. We're hoping they're still here as yesterday a rather large female sparrowhawk came whizzing past the window into the hawthorn hedge and then bounced out into an ash tree. Perhaps she also scared a visiting yellowhammer which has not been seen since.
CJS Weekly is now printing, this week it's eight pages with 66 new paid posts of which 40 came direct to CJS.
Today is also Amy's last day before she goes on maternity leave. During her absence Helen is stepping up to cover Amy's main roles.
We wish Amy, Nev and their 'Bean' all the very best and look forward to her return next year.
