Sulky Saturday

I had a pleasant wander around the local nature reserve on Saturday morning. Highlights included Whitethroat, Kingfisher, Cuckoo, Garganey and several dozen Swifts.

The paths and boardwalks were littered with countless broken twigs (some up to an inch in diameter!) as a result of the strong winds the previous day. With the overnight rain, storm-lashed blossom coated many surfaces giving the place a surreal air, as if I had missed a grand  wedding.

Speaking of missing things...

Once more unto the breach that is the unforgiving blank page.

I saw my first dragon of the year on Thursday, at Minsmere. Four-spotted Chaser. :-)

They are everywhere else apparently, from the southernmost counties up to the Midlands. Excluding north MK. Saw my first crane flies of the year today, so not long until the odes appear.
