As one of you has said to me today in an email – “are we stuck in this rut of changeable weather with an endless stream of cool weather, showers, persistent rain, thunderstorms and hail?” (we just missed the worst of the heavy rain yesterday, Sunday afternoon which caused floods in a wide area from Sheffield northwards!.
What makes this all a little disappointing is that May is supposed to be a fairly dry month of the year, so what is going wrong with the weather?
One big problem sits over Greenland, where there is a large, powerful and stubborn block of high pressure – this is diverting the jet stream south across the UK and sending the changeable weather over the UK. Already the rainfall figures for the first half of the month over England and Wales are near the average for the whole of May. In Buxton we have had nearly 150mm (nearly 6 inches) of rain – that is heading (If this carries on) to nearly double our Buxton average!
The drought of April now seems like a distant memory!
Looking through The Met Office Slopes Weather Station records, our wettest May since our records started in 1860 was 1967, when we had 186mm of rain – against a national average of 141mm.
So my correspondent goes on to ask, “does a wet May herald a dreadful summer?” Maybe we can take heart because May 1967 was followed by a fairly warm July and August. And another washout in May 2006 was followed by a scorching hot and sunny July. May 2007 was another damp squib, with both May bank holidays washed out. That summer was fairly dire, however, with widespread flooding in July! ......We will see!!......

Sorry!! - although some of our bird boxes have gained some nesting material over the last few days, none seem to becoming a nest - if things change, will place a notice and link here straight away - in the meantime, as a consolation, we have noticed today that a pigeon has nested in a tree at the front of our house - and has one chick hatched, and one egg!! - live camera installed today!- CLICK HERE (Ignore the wording on the page - just using the Blue Tit Page temporarily) - It is interesting to note that the pigeon does not seem to leave the nest for food very often  - but unlike blue tit chicks who each need an incredible 100 grubs a day, baby pigeons feed on "crop milk" produced by female and male pigeons, for the first week or so! ("Crop Milk" is a gloopy milky nutrition produced in the bird's crop, by male and female birds to feed chicks) It also seems that the female pigeon sits on the nest from evening to the morning and the male does the day shift!
I have put the bird feeder camera back online - you likely have lots of birds of your own - but if you want to watch birds at a feeder, in a tree in our garden, CLICK HERE!

Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
........... Sunday 23 May - Tuesday 1 Jun
Unsettled weather continues through the start of the period, with widespread showers. Persistent rain is also possible, turning heavy locally and moving eastwards through the UK, particularly on Sunday. As next week progresses there is a chance of more settled conditions to gradually become established. Rain and showers are likely to clear away to the east, leaving drier and less windy conditions behind by the end of the week. Temperatures look likely to remain on the cool side, though feeling pleasant in the sunshine. Night temperatures could become chilly, with late season frost in prone spots a possibility. As we move into the following week, things become more uncertain, but indications suggest a continuation of drier weather with the possibility of temperatures starting to increase slightly.
Tuesday 1 Jun - Tuesday 15 Jun
Confidence is low for this period, which is usual during spring and early summer. Current expectations is that conditions will be predominantly dry, especially across the south and east. Less settled interludes are still possible, however, especially in the northwest. There are indications that temperatures will likely start recovering, moving more towards typical temperatures for this time of year.  ..................................
