I awoke to ….. blue skies !!
Anyway for the second night in a row my eyes glazed over by 9:30!! Wow!!
I headed off to Langford Lakes. It’s a Wiltshire Wildlife Trust reserve and though small would make a nice local patch. Warbler singing (Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Sedge and Willow). 2 Grebe pairs one definitely on a nest and I felt sorry for one chap all alone on his lake. Hope he gets a mate.
Not vast numbers of birds seen but a walk with birds singing is always nice. They had a Little Gull yesterday mutters!!
I then headed to Lacock. You’ve seen it before. Oh yes every period drama seems to have it and I love to go back when it’s dressed up and the cars are gone. The village is owned by the National Trust and so it is kept to a pattern.
I hope you approve of my selection of B&W. In a couple of places the same/similar image appears in B&W and colour, opinions?
The church of St Cyriac I’ve visited before.
Inside of old barn
I then went into the Abbey grounds had a pleasant stroll then found a seat and pressed on with my book. Idyllic!
I had a nice vanilla ice cream to top off the day.
I’ve also discovered a new English wine from Wiltshire I think and I’ll stick this in the fridge for Jan.
I arrived home jumped in the shower and then checked my work email – MEGA SAD!!
As I type this the pub is about to open so a beer awaits! .
