We have had wonderful weather for walking –
Cold but bright.
So we have been up and down the prom a few times over the last few days.
And every day this little group of Oystercatchers is huddled on the tide line.
(I think they are Oystercatchers aren’t they?)
One of the benefits of all the wet weather
Is that the Goldfinches visit the garden to feed as the fields are too soggy.
For the last few days this pair have been regularly eating the Niger Seed
I hope they stay around when the rain stops.
(Edit; oops, forgot to push the publish button! This is yesterdays image)
We have had such a poor July and August,
That we have not had three consecutive dry days
Which made to-day even more special
As it was warm and sunny
And the garden was full of bees and butterflies.
One of the delights of working in the garden at this time of year is the young birds
Who sometimes look as if they have still to grow into their “grown-up feathers”
Or, as in this case, having a really “bad hair day”!
To-day is the longest day.
We only had a short walk.
As we were celebrating P’s Birthday
Dobby, P, Snowdrop and I walked into Barmouth
And sat in a harbour cafe and drank hot chocolate ….
With marshmallows AND cream!
After watching “Springwatch“
I decided I must look at gulls
Through new eyes.
This dragonfly nymph caught my eye this morning
Just as I was leaving for work –
I would like to have stayed and watched the dragonfly emerging.
But other gardens beckoned.
(Well, their weeds did!)
This little lamb was wondering around a very big field all on his own
Calling for his Mum.
Who was in the next field with the rest of the flock
