I don't normally keep lists and this is not the complete list for this year; the day started with garden birds:
Ring necked Parakeet
Whilst at Barnes there were numbers of many different birds, I didn't note them - but I did see one of the Bitterns albeit very very briefly today.
Another window from the same hide, produced a Pintail - very nice - it also had its back to me as did the Coot that was keeping it company!!
The Pintail then ducked down in the water and - yes, you've sussed it - it had its back to me and its tail in the air. I think by now, I was beginning to get the message.
I have been told, that there is a sky that's blue! And, additionally, there's a strange globe, coloured orange, that's high in the sky and gives light and warmth.... Has anyone seen either of these as I'm beginning to think that someone's pulling a fast one here ;)
