@axodys I really enjoyed it, too. Well worth watching.
@variablepulserate That’s good, because it is!
My latest noodlings with watercolours.
@variablepulserate I’m sure it is. I’ll have to add it to my list, along with getting a decent look at a kingfisher. Even better if I have a camera to hand. So far I’ve only seen a flash of colour as one flew away - but that was still quite exciting.
I have to admit I struggle to identify birds of prey - aside from the basic shape differences. I’ve spent quite a lot of time with red kites. They have loads near Harewood House and a friend & I happened to be there late one afternoon just as they were putting food down for the kites. We were surrounded by them before we had even realised. So special to be amongst them, beautiful birds.
It’s the simple things isn’t it. Plenty of birds chattering away when I was out - & I agree, a murmuration is also an astounding sight.
@variablepulserate Ooh I’ve never seen a Skylark. Seen kestrels, but not much out today, not even the buzzards that often lurk. Heard some great tits, but the cuckoo has gone.
@matigo She did. Although I think she’s now bored as I’ve been messing around with watercolours since we got back. 😇
A bit cloudy and humid for today’s walk. Dodged the rain though.
@matigo Well nothing bad has happened yet, but then I’ve not done much so far. Feeling remarkably unmotivated. Currently waiting for an antihistamine to take effect (& the drowsiness to wear off).
@matigo ☹ Yeah.
@streakmachine I know that feeling! The world seems to have gone mad.
