Dull, again; but it doesn't stop the mozzy's from bighting.
A quick look over at Cormorant island before I set off round the north lake, and it seems one of the cygnets has gone missing. I could only count four. Maybe the other was with his dad?
As I began to go under the road bridge, a couple of Reed Warblers caught my attention, as they noisily made their way through the reeds. I think they were probably young ones.
The Common Tern still sits on her nest; today in the company of three Mallards.
Up towards the pub, and a juvenile Green Woodpecker caught my eye as he probed the grass, and went from tree to tree in search of food.
A few geese were grazing as I walked down towards the pub, and a group of Greylag's were along the edge of the path. Amongst them, a Cormorant.
As I made my way closer, he seemed a little wary at first, and then as the geese began to move away, he decided his cover had been blown.
Over the road bridge, and back to the car park.
Quick visit this morning. Doctors later; it's called a cardiac clinic, where I get the results of the blood test, and a lecture about my lifestyle.
