We have been enjoying our temporary accommodation very much. Out by the swimming pool a bird house hangs in a tree and the baby birds in it keep up a demanding cheeping all day long. The parents must be worn to a frazzle! Frenzied cheeping greets every visit by the parent bird, and even more frenzied cheeping accompanies their departure to get more food! I spent quite a while in the pool today observing them and felt exhausted after 15 minutes (and I was only floating there!) The parents have my sympathy. Today's weather was much more comfortable that recently - only 90 in the shade! The wildlife enjoyed it too, lots of butterflies and dragonflies zipping around. One dragonfly kept dipping into the pool for a drink.
