It has turned out really hot again today. I was sat on the garden swing early this morning, listening to a pair of wood pidgeons and a magpie. Where are all the little birds? At one time they would be singing away, now no sign of any. My bird feeders are untouched and the only visits to the bird table are the wood pidgeons! My budlea is covered in flowers which should be covered in butterflies but there are none to be seen. So far today I have seen one butterfly, which didn't stop and my only bee. She likes the sunflowers.
