Mum and I stood in her garden and watched an aerial battle between a gull and a sparrowhawk. It was the sparrowhawk that was being bombarded with attacks from the gull!
They were exceedingly high in the sky and I was surprised that I managed a shot at all let alone the record shots below!
Near the entrance the blossom was wonderful. The sky was blue and the sun was warm.
Chiff chaffs and Blackcaps sang from the trees and shrubbery - but none of them would come into view..
And a family of 5 mallard ducklings. Sadly (I know from a friend) there were 9 last night - so 4 have 'disappeared' already :(
And the pair of nesting Great Crested Grebes who have been sitting on eggs for a few days now, were, I'm pleased to say, still sitting on the nest :D
On my way out, the Canada Geese were being territorial - several had nests and these were protecting theirs!
The last couple of days have seen temperatures (in Sussex and Surrey) of around 22 degrees! This is amazing for April which is a month renown for very wet weather! Seems to good to last but hopefully it will be with us for at least the weekend.
