We're two weeks into rewiring; half way there. Can't complain since the guy who's doing it is very organised so the disruption is as minimal as possible. I can't wait to do all the subsequent redecorating though.... Hmmm
But onto a happier subject...
Between errands yesterday, I took time out for a walk around Croston Finney. The most striking additions since my last visit were whitethroat calls which emanated from all the hedgerows. I was also struck by how well the lapwings were defending their territories against the much larger black-backed gulls. Well, all except one pair who looked on in despondency as two dozen crows, assorted gulls, pigeons and magpies were feeding all over 'their' field.
I was pleased to see a kingfisher flying over a field - it's not often I see one there.
