FWN took a ride up to Sheriffmuir and were delighted to spot four Roe Deer in the long grass, we quickly got out a camcorder and managed to film them as they made off and jumped the fence in the distance.

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.

Yesterday’s trip to the Swan Pond was a washout, torrential rain put a halt to my filming and after taking cover under some trees I headed home for a warm coffee and a seat in front of the TV to watch Stage 1 of this years Tour de France.
So it was with a sense of hope that I headed down to the pond this morning for ‘Take 2′ of Swan Diaries, Week 6.
The cygnets are about a third the size of mum and dad now and there front is showing a bit of white feathering coming through.
On my bike ride home I spotted a field which was a sea of buttercups with a few ponies in it.
Also the wheat fields are growing quickly, and it’s so nice to see the waves that the wind creates brushing through field.
