We  wandered over to Stoke Park yesterday and again this morning. We have benefited from the exercise and have enjoyed meeting people (at a distance). I have been very challenged to get photographs of the birds as they are either hiding well or moving too fast (as was the case with swifts today). It’s fun trying though.

It was too cold for dragon flies and damselflies it seems but there was this moth in my garden:
