Just a few from the day!!
Not sure what was going on here!
Starlings were landing on the cattle's noses - seemed to be feeding... insects I would suspect.. but the cattle didn't seem to mind!
This Migrant Hawker was rather obliging! - I'm always amazed by the detail in Dragonflies!!
I was watched as I walked!
and on the way out, this junior Great Spotted Woodpecker was paying a visit!
whilst a rabbit dozed!
and as there was still time, I wandered off for a visit to NT Petworth Park... the gardens are fairly colourless at this time of the year - Spring and Autumn are entirely different of course!
Many Greylags out on the lake
and dozens of very noisy Canada Geese... I got the impression they were ready for the off!
There was a nature trail for the children.. I thought this owl was quite clever carved into the tree..
and an addition of a bat and some fungi in this one
and that was that... had a piece of Date & Walnut cake with an apple juice and headed off.
Very pleasant impromptu visits
