Housemartins. James I'm so jealous. I can't honestly can't remember the last time I saw a Housemartin. But I have the feeling that I still wore socks. That makes it, well, suffice to say it wasn't yesterday!

Grrrr. What is wrong with this thing today? I've just uploaded pics, its thrown me off the site and deleted my post! Quite annoying I have to say. Any time I click to go into the forum its kicks me out and tells me I have to sign in again. And I had trouble uploading the pics, the link to upload from my computer isn't working. Grrrr. Rant over!

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you're all well and enjoying the beautiful weather x

Over the last year we've been here (Bletchingley in Surrey) in our semi country/semi woodland home we've had both mistle thrushes and song thrushes although admittedly not in any great numbers (the odd one or two). Beautiful birds to look at and to listen to its a shame there aren't more but they're the first ones I've seen in years and years. Lots of blackbirds though. Had a visiting Fieldfare last winter, who knows if he'll come back this year, we also had Redwings last winter, hoping to see them again this year. I'd love to see more thrushes I think they are declining.

James I've just seen all of this. What a clever person you are. Quite the handy man by the looks of it and quite a good gardener too, Clueless by name but not by nature me thinks! Keep at it, its looking fantastic so far and it'll only get better. Posting here so as not to be seen as some sort of mad cyber stalker

I would go for Thyme, which in my experience is a fairly hardy herb and should cope without too much sunlight. Parsley is always a good grower and ideal for growing in a window sill. Its largely up to you as you know what you like to eat! I always have problems growing basil so I don't bother now. Oregano/Marjoram usually do OK just left to their own devices too. Be careful of Mint though, don't get me wrong it'll grow well enough, but too well tends to be the problem, it can have a tendancy to take over and if you have limited space that would be a bit of a pain. If you don't want to grow from seed it might be just as well to go to your local garden centre and buy the herbs you want already started, you can still take all the credit when they continue growing! Good luck
