On the road this morning, a Mole – sadly dead. This is the second in the last couple weeks.

In complete contrast to recent weeks, this morning’s walk was enjoyed in warm, sunny and still conditions – although the ground remains pretty soggy after yesterdays down-pours. Too early for any insects to be about, there was, however, plenty of evidence of successful bird breeding, with family parties of Chiffchaff, Whitethroat and Grey Wagtail all observed. The male Pochard was still on the lake, along with a couple of female Mandarin and the family party of Mute Swan. A lovely walk to start the day.
