"Après moi, le déluge"

Not at all used in the sense intended by Mme de Pompadour, but rather a reference to the fact that the rain started just as I returned home from my walk!

A five-mile march around Buckenham and Strumpshaw under glowering clouds was enjoyable if not over-productive. Feral geese were everywhere: Egyptians, Barnacles, Greylags and two Snow Geese.... but in among them was a single Pink-footed Goose.

Lots of Buzzards, including one sat in a tree at Buckenham and a pair receiving the attentions of corvids at Strumpshaw Woods.

Other birds included a distant Kingfisher (Please get rid of the algae in front of Reception Hide!) and several Bearded Tits, while this cricket and a few Migrant Hawkers livened up the morning.
