A bit boring now but more than welcome! another lovely bright morning and I was at the castle before 7am, with just ROBINS and BLACKBIRDS for company as everything else gradually joined in on the act. I really enjoyed the stroll round today, I sat for 10 minutes by a tree waiting for a Kingfisher to appear, possibly more time needed there, and did a fairly full circuit round the fields. The highlights round the fields were 3 CORMORANTS heading east. A COMMON BUZZARD flew low being mobbed by a crow and at least 1 CROSSBILL flew south. I was rubbish with the camera this morning and haven't got a lot to show for what was a really enjoyable walk!!
