When you're feeling a bit down I've always found it a big help to go to a place where you feel happy. I'm lucky to have that place not too far away and it's somewhere I can escape the hustle and bustle of city life. I've been social distancing here for many years now. It's a real joy to go early, when you almost own the landscape and the nature within it. Peace and quiet and a sense that many have been here before me and not much has changed. The birds are still around and there was a nice surprise for me too in the form of a Whinchat. This bird must have been on his way to his winter home. It was great to watch it though as it foraged for food, but sad to think that our summer migrants will soon be gone for another year.
Along the river there were a couple of Grey Wagtails looking very good once again after the busy breeding period.
Beautiful birds. I hope you feel well. Have a nice weekend. Greeting CarolineReplyDelete
Hello Adam. Beautiful and peaceful photos. Birds fly south, but soon winter birds will arrive at feeding places to delight us.ReplyDelete
Lovely series of birds and photos. The Winchat on the fence photos are beautifully captured. The Nuthatch is one of my favorites. Take care and stay safe. Thank you for linking up your post. Enjoy your day, have a happy weekend.
Such beautiful photos! I need a place like that to escape too. Have a great weekend :)ReplyDelete
I totally agree! Going out to the nature preserves have helped me through the summer and made the lockdown easier. You always see something and it's refreshing. Love that Nuthatch...they are so much fun to watch!ReplyDelete
Sweet bird portraits! What would we do without the great outdoors to console us?ReplyDelete
