Had a great workday on the moss clearing some trees and gorse from the side of the path towards the centre copse. The highlight of the day was a peacock (not the one seen in the photo unfortunately, today’s kept taking off as I tried to get close enough to photograph it) on the wing latest I’ve ever seen a butterfly of any description. Other sightings were two buzzards, a sparrowhawk and a greater black-backed gull. Phill spotted a brief flight of a water rail whilst Mark supplied some much welcomed mince pies.
Best wishes to all for the festive season.
