Friday 26th April
A day’s pics with no birds!
Just up the canal there’s a patch of daffs and narcissi under a blackthorn.
Looking rather insectile – hazel buds sprouting.
And here’s a rather fetching sunset through the poplars.
There’s a poor mallard female under there being pursued and, there’s only one word for it, raped by two males with her brood of chicks around.
Empty nest and first definite sighting of grebe chicks. On mum’s back.
Monday 29th April
Mum and dad with the chicks. There’s actually four as you’ll see next month.
and here’s a pied wagtail buggerin’ off.
That’s all for April: on to May →
