A little time with nature in the garden. It can only lift the spirits.
Having recovered from COVID it’s been good to get out and about these last few days. My Achilles’ tendon injury still limits how far I can walk but I’ve taken the opportunity to see bird activity around Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes without venturing too far from my car.
The most attractive birds have been the great crested grebes which are in breeding plumage; however, I have been disappointed not see their courting displays.
There are always plenty of mute swans which still amaze me in flight.
