Furry Friends!!

Our furry friends are back… Or did they ever actually leave?

Cannot help but go, “aah, cute…” but when we are getting through a bucket of fat-balls every other week, maybe the novelty wears a bit thin.

Great use of our observation bench, that’s hidden away on the opposite bank, though.

This is the view without the zoom.

This adds yet another facet to the path. I cannot tell you how peaceful it is to just sit with a cup of coffee and a camera, and just chill-out with nature, identify what is spotted and then update iRecord.

We had a bit of storm damage in the next clearing.

Luckily, the blue tits in the fallen box had recently fledged, and the upside-down box did not get used this year. Maybe worth thinking about how securely the boxes are put up in the first place, and yes it was me who put these ones up!!

Other than that, it was a pretty chilled out day where we avoided most of the rain, for Phil, Sharon, Aaron and myself.

We just snipped back anything that looked like it was growing across the path in an effort to keep the balance between a great path for walking, running or mountain-biking, and a fantastic habitat for wildlife.

Wildflowers spotted:

Plenty more, but being very wet and cloudy meant that most flowers did the sensible thing and remained tucked-up in bed.

Well, that is about it for this week. Our coffee and cookie break was on the hoof this week, due to a lack of picnic tables in this bit, but still good to enjoy a warming drink and super-nice biscuits, thanks to Phil and Sharon.
