The Forest

Where you are away from a place you visit often it is odd to see so much change!

For a start the buttercups are becoming prominent ......

First spot were 4 Juvenile Herons......

2 Terns on the raft.

The nest by the view platform has gone but there were two adults with two chicks! I assume these were from the shell house pair but there was a pair of Grebes there. A mystery. A total of 8 adult grebes!!

The highlight was a Common Sandpiper!!!

Lots of Warblers about including Reed and Sedge. One curiosity is I've heard very few Willow Warblers this year.

I then wandered over to Dad's. His nibs was cutting his back lawn with his chair handy for short rests! so I banged on the window with a cup and mouthed "do you want a cuppa?". He nodded and sat down. I made the tea and then finished the grass!!!!

We nipped out to get some plants for pots and I spent the rest of the morning reading (after making coffee). Sir cooked a nice roast Gammon for lunch.

This afternoon I cut the grass and have lazed about!

Sounds like a lovely day - lovely photo of the Greylag goslings. Buttercups seem to be flowering everywhere at the moment.
