Mr Heron is waiting patiently.
It was lucky that this hoverfly was taking its time on the flowers yesterday, and wasn’t bothered about me being very close to it, which gave me the chance to focus my camera and get a decent shot.
That’s my six words for this Saturday. For more sets of six words visit Debbie at Travel With Intent.
Hope you have a good weekend.
Two shells on the beach. What stories could they tell about where they have been? Where will they go with the next high tide, or will they be picked up and taken to someone’s home?
Walking along by the canal yesterday evening we spotted four mandarin ducklings, two Canada geese and one gosling. There was no sign anywhere of a mandarin parent, so I hope all was well.
I’m linking up today with Debbie’s Six Word Saturday.
Recently I went to the RSPB’s Minsmere reserve on the Suffolk coast and spent a few happy hours observing the wide range of birds that were either resident there, or passing visitors. Those of us who happened to be in the right place at the right time were the envy of the other visitors when we saw (and heard) a bittern.
“A thickset heron with all-over bright, pale, buffy-brown plumage covered with dark streaks and bars. It flies on broad, rounded, bowed wings. A secretive bird, very difficult to see, as it moves silently through reeds at water’s edge, looking for fish. The males make a remarkable far-carrying, booming sound in spring. Its dependence on reedbeds and very small population make it an Amber List species.” (From the RSPB website)

I hope these birds have read the sign …
