Nil day

A 'nil day' today starting with a jaunt out to garden centres for plants plus an al fresco coffee with 2-3 pairs each of House Martin and Swallow plus a noisy Nuthatch. On the outward and return journey a Buzzard crossed the road skimming the ground, presumably the same bird.

A leg stretch round the pond area was pretty fruitless with just 7-8 Lesser Black-backs, the usual Cettis and three remaining Moorhen chicks; sadly no Reed Warblers yet so presumably  they won't be nesting this year.

This miniature Crane Fly sat up - Ptychoptera contaminata.
The small amount of Marsh Marigold is going over but the Yellow Flag Iris has flowered very quickly since last week.

Also one of yesterday's mini Slow Worms.
