Grey Heron (Lydney Boating Lake)

Weather was like yesterdays, only we had about 45 minutes of sun. I thought it may have stayed like it, so I went out and tried for something, but after half an hour, which is what I needed to get myself ready, it was already turning black. So here I am, twiddling my fingers.

Greenshank (Gloucestershire)

I am watching my Rowen tree, it is great, full of red berries. This is the first time it has done this, so, I do believe that it's comes waiting for the birds, you know which one it is, the Waxwing! "But, they only go the white berries not the red ones",  yes I know that, but last winter it cames to the red as well. Still, it'll be exciting.
