Up the canal to Haggonfields lock then through Rhodesia and round Lady Lee quarry.
(after round the pond, obviously)
Only a sparrow in the reeds.
Tit or finch? You decide!
A grebe caught surfacing. Imagine it gasping a breath in.
Shining metallic armour of a fly.
Dunno what this beasty is – it was very red when it was in flight but more black when settled.
Looks a bit like some kind of super villain.(Darth Maul perchance?)
A bee on the ground. They seem to wander around on the ground quite a lot.
Common as muck but pretty. I like the pink tinged petals and the pollen specks doubtless dropped by laden insects.
A guy whose house backs on to the pond has bird boxes with cameras. Here’s a snap of his screen of bluetits in the nest.
The little ‘un was scurrying along seemingly on top of the water.
Not a bride’s headband, although it wouldn’t take a lot of work to make one..
A small white. Smaller than a large white – hence the name!
Swan resting a leg. They often idle around with one foot over their back.
I’ve always called these flowers “raggéd robin” but looking the name up on t’net it seems I’m wrong. So what are they?
ENUFF ALREADY! Silene dioica (Red Campion)
Tortoiseshell only a little nibbled at the rear. Another overwinterer?
Speckled wood. Got really close to this one.
I forget what these blue flowers are called.Myosotis?
Lady Lee looking quite tropical.
Folded rocks in the wall of Lady Lee quarry. Geology – don’cha luvit?
