Tenth to thirteenth May

Friday 10th May

Grebes of course but first a couple of pics that attracted me: BywashMorse lock’s bywash has ripples that change from moment to moment with the wind, the sun and the flow – here they remind me of boiling molten lead! 

LBJsparrow… and a sparrow … … (or a dunnock – I’ve given up on the dunnock/sparrow thing)

  2. I now have some bluebells (fewer every year) white bells but now some pink bells have appeared. I assure you not cultivated by me (or anyone) garden hasn’t been touched for about 3 years. Chris saw a chiffchaff on Ulva. I like the chaffinch best. x
