Today is very windy in Wicklow so I decided to go down to the harbour to take some photographs as I knew the waves would be very high. After taking some photos down at the harbour I went up over the town where you can see the whole bay but when I got out of the car I realised that it was just too windy. I was nearly swept off my feet and had great difficulty getting back into the car, I won't do that again!

We had a pair very distressed blackbirds in our front garden.

During the recent stormy weather our lilac tree blew down. We knew that the blackbirds had a nest in that tree as there was a lot of activity around it, especially first thing in the morning.

Both birds have been calling to each other for the last few days but today when I looked out they had gone. I hope they have been able to find another suitable nest site and will raise a family in time.
