A depressing sort of day, damp and drizzly this morning and nothing about but a Shield Beetle which I dislodged and couldn’t find. I was going down to the river but as it’s a five or six mile round trip and it was barely light I gave it a miss.
This is a picture showing about a tenth of the flock of Sparrows. They can eat two fat balls a day and empty the seed feeder faster than I can fill it. They were getting scarce but seem to have made a recovery round here. I am limiting them to one fill up a day. The only other visitors are a Great Tit, a Blue Tit and a family of these………………
The summer is moving on fast so I thought I’d show you a small area of the grass verge on the old drovers way. The purple is Tufted Vetch, the blue Harebells and the yellow is Ladies Bedstraw………..I hope! The green is either leaves or grass and grass comes in hundreds of forms………….I’ll give grass ID a miss till next week. Like tomorrow next week never arrives.
I hope for a better day tomorrow. Have a good Sunday.
