The day started well as I was cycling along the dirt path on my journey to the pond, a young Rabbit cut across the path.The weather was a vast improvement of the past few days as blue skies were appearing in early morning.
As I got nearer the pond I spotted a few Sparrows look for food in the nearby field, so I stopped and took some photos.
All along the telephone wires I could see Swallows and House Martins sitting and taking off to skim the tops of the field while
The constant ‘chatter’ of these amazing little birds is what always reminds me of summertime.
I was amazed to see, at first two Herons in the far field, until I scanned the horizon and then I counted three, then as I scanned left and right I spotted another two .That was five altogether, I,ve only ever seen one on various rivers.
Even the gulls were resting all along the fencing.
As I threw some food to the Moorhen I watched it swim to the far reeds to pass it on to one of its chicks.
The chick then dis-appeared back into the safety of the reeds
As I cycled home , again (like last week) I came across a Buzzard on some telephone wires. I stopped and took out my binoculars and watched fascinated, as it dropped into the field, out of sight for a moment, then taking flight with a vole in its clutches.
