Better weather sees many birds attempting to raise a second brood

While the mean temperature in July was a little lower than June and the rainfall for the month was more than double the rainfall in June. The period May to June this year was warmer, mean temperature two degrees higher, and drier, 30 per cent less rain, than the same period last year. This was more conducive than last year to the successful breeding of many species of birds.
