I didn’t really have time for a walk but it was such a beautiful morning that I decided I had to fit one in.
The colours in the park were magnificent but there wasn’t much bird life – not even the reliable stonechats of recent visits.
I was just about to give up, thinking that the 4 moorhens were all I was about to see when I spotted a couple of goldfinches feeding on the teasels.
However, they didn’t hang around for long; but my morning was made when I saw the flash of a kingfisher. How this little bird lifts the spirits. It disappeared in to a bush only to re-appear and settle on a fence.
I know a kingfisher is really no big deal, but I was very happy.
