Happy and a little sad

Article text
Well it's all kicking off here at Paws-a-While.
The Red Kites have gone to nest, just the odd one gliding over.
We have a pair of Great Tits nesting above the kithen window and a pair of Pied Wagtails nesting under the carport. Six Goldfinches regularly seen at the back and a Nuthatch on the nuts.
On Tuesday we saw our first pair of Swallows.
The sad bit.
Our local Kingfisher hasn't been seen for a while now but a pair of Greylags are nesting on the island. However we a have a lone Greylag at the front of the house---Goosey no mates--- Shame.
