Walked outside about dinner time and heard a Crow call close to me, I looked up and saw the mother Crow and her two babies flying just the other side of the road from me.Im sure she knows I watch out for them, she gave me a sideways glance as she passed bless her,moments like this fill me with hope.

Its 17.56 and I have just seen the mother Crow over the road with her babies from last Summer and this Summer all together in the nest tree.I always leave some bread and things in the road when I drive out during the day, to give them some food if the weather is bad like today.Really putting out food is only needed in the cold Winter months for birds and animals, the Summer is when food for them is okay and they all put on weight.But I find it hard not to help the birds, and feed British Finch seed all year round in my garden in a feeder for them.It makes me feel good to know it helpsthem all.

So far this Summer I have just seen the one Swallow, just the 1, its the worst year I can ever remember for lack of Swallows, and to this date the Swifts have been thin on the ground as well.I dont know why this drop in Swallows, perhaps a bad nesting year last Summer, who knows, but its not a good sign at all.

Just seen the mother Crow outside my home but only the one baby with her, and as it rained all last night pretty well I hope its just I havent seen it yet.I put bread outside and the mother Crow fed the single Crow with it before moving off,its been a cold week so I hope the missing Crow is okay.No word of the father Crow with the broken wing yet, tried texting and ringing the place in Nuneaton but no reply from either.

Saw the mother Crow with the two new babies and the older male bird from last Summer again early this week, I put bread out for them and they did eat some of it,I put mixed corn out as well.Its nice to see this family group together, and it makes me wonder about the other Crow over Slough Park Coventry, havent seen that Crow with the deformed leg for weeks and weeks now,I hope that Crow has managed during this Corvid situation.It disappeared last year for months till Oct when it came back to the Park,so I hope its just busy someplace else and is in good health.No news of the male Crow with the broken wing,the Animal and bird places in Nuneaton just dont answer any text or phone calls yet ?

Not seen the mother Crow or any of the babies for a few days now, I hope they are okay, I saw them about 18 hours most nights passing over my home.Last night when I was watering the flowers outside I saw a sick Bee on the floor looking bad, so I put it in the flowers to keep it safe, but this morning I found it dead under the flower pot,really upset me that.

Last night two Crows flew overhead and one called out once,followed by another two Crows a short distance behind them,I cannot say for certain but I think this was the Crow family from the tree over the road from me.The fields are being cut around me now so loads of food for birds just now.
