As trees green with leaves and flowers begin to bloom, birds are harder to see and butterflies easier.
Please don’t hesitate to tell me when I identify something wrongly (not an uncommon occurrence).
Sat 18th May
A couple of sort o’ sporty ones.
Rugby field just been mowed (mown?). Pretty patterns in the grass.
Must be summer – the flannelled fools are at it.
Family: mum and dad on guard while junior just hangs out.
You’d wonder what was wrong if I went a week without a grebe picture.
Birds that pose for you, don’t you love ’em?
What! More robin?
Well, they always pose so well.
Sunday 19th May
As I recall, it was a bit of a waste of a day.
Only one pic and I’m not sure what it is.
This little beastie was a lot bluer when in flight – a sort of steel blue. Think it’s either a Small Blue [Cupido minimus] – not likely this far north – or a Holly Blue [Celastrina argiolus]. Correction welcomed.
Monday the twentieth of May
Leaves doing a flower impersonation. Pretty!
Pike fisherman with his prey. Note the glove!
Patterns in the water. A coot carrying building material to its nest.
Speckled Wood defying a nettle.
Orange tip pair having it orf.
Probably a green veined white.
Pheasant in the reeds. Spotted me!
Tuesday, May the twenty-first
pretentious arty warning
Same mallards, closer.
Horse chestnut blossom.
How near or far from a circle/sphere is this?
Singing at the top of the tree makes birds visible.
