Staying Local

So the lockdown continues and movement is still down to staying in the local area, so it was that the local pond came in to its own again.

Still very muddy underfoot as I made may down thru the field picking up on plenty of Woodpigeon, Jackdaws, a few Blackbirds (Male and Female), House Sparrows, Black headed Gulls, and Common Gulls.

Around at the ponds life was a bit quite with very little movement, life here will be picking up in a couple of months when insect life begins again and warmer days. All was not lost as a Grey Heron flew in but didn’t stay long and was soon off agin high over the wood.

A dog barking prompted me to look around and to see a handful of Roe Deer rushing across the path and into the quarry area and eventually out the other side, coming out more gracefully than going in.

I wondered into another area of the ponds and flushed up a Jack Snipe but it was never relocated classic flight as I flushed it up straight up, quick and straight back down again
