My blog is mostly about wildlife, particularly birds, walking, days out, all growing things and anything else that comes to mind.

Rome...we've arrived!

Left at an unmentionable hour and the flight took off at 6.15 a.m. on time.  Arrived 15 minutes early with a following wind.  Flew over the Alps - the most dramatic views as the cloud had cleared which had been with us since leaving Stansted!

Already seen Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and Coloseum - just a bit.  Loads more to explore but it's been a glorious day with brilliant sunshine and blue skies

Seen a Hooded Crow (lifer!), Siskin, a Ring-necked Parakeet and, we think, a Serin - loads of Starlings and Sparrows..heard a Great Tit.

Table booked at a local Restaurant for our meal later.......

I think I'll sleep tonight! :D
