Up on the pub roof, the young House Martins were gathering, and excitedly chattering about their forthcoming maiden migration to Africa.
‘Where’s Africa?’ .........................nobody knew.
‘How do we get there?’ ..............nobody knew.
I took a short break from car hunting today, and wandered around the local lake in the sunshine. Apart from some distant trees hitting their first flushes of autumn colour in the leaves,it felt rather pleasant. Almost like a summers day; enough to lift the spirits. Even some of the birds were a bit cooperative for a change.
A few more pictures from Sunday. Mostly butterflies, but I did mange a couple of birds. This family of Swans were enjoying a quiet moment,and a female Reed Bunting.
