Low cloud slowly dispersed during this afternoons patch visit, and by dusk it was cool and clear. I took a walk over to the lakes first off, but the trainee tree surgeons were again in the large garden which is adjacent to the water, I must remember to avoid Thursdays over there !
Needless to say not a thing was on the water, but a KINGFISHER was seen flitting across it. I stayed very briefly before moving on to the Tree Nursery, where the KESTRELS spent some time hunting before trying their luck at the Green House Grounds. Also of note were two COMMON BUZZARDS that flew low over, and the two MEADOW PIPITS were still amongst the shrubs and rough grassland.
