who looked at me quite disapprovingly - obviously didn't like its song being interrupted for a picture
Heard a chiff chaff and watched whilst this Jay and a Thrust had a real ding-dong argument. Pity the Jay then hid in the tree.
I'd walked along the river to the bird hide in the hopes of seeing Kingfishers. But they were not playing ball today and no sight of sound of them
