So rained on St Swithin's day, but it was also sunny which, I suppose, means 40 days of unsettled weather. Which has been just what we've had ever since a mix of sunshine and showers, cooler and then hot, only another 36 days to go. Mrs Blackbird is feeding a third brood of noisy demanding fledglings but seems to be managing OK, and the garden is still relatively pest free so the more blackbirds and tits the better.
You should have all received your copy of CJS Weekly today, this week's edition includes the August training calendar as well as the usual mix of jobs (42 this week, of which 22 came direct to CJS), volunteer vacancies and snippets of information. There's also a call for people to take part in the big butterfly count.
