The weather was glorious (amazingly) so I managed to get out early this morning for a walk in the cotswold countryside. There was a lovely mist in the churn valley which engulfed Mum's village of Colesbourne.
The spring sown crops look like they're about ready for harvesting (to me anyway) which gives a lovely patchwork look to the countryside.
On the way back for breakfast I was able to take some photographs of Swallows who look about ready to make their amazing long migration to Africa pretty soon.
I managed to catch this one in the act of pooping!
In Mum's garden, the signs of autumn are already on their way. These Viburnum and Rowan berries look good enough to eat, specially to the Blackbirds and Mistle Thrushes.
A young female Green Woodpecker visited Mum's lawn to dig out ants nests. I noticed their yaffling call alot during the last couple of days.
On the feeders I managed to snap a Nuthatch and Great Tit, though these are not quite sharp due I think to being taken through double glazing!
Back to rain for the weekend I think. Just makes days like these last two all the more special.
