As we started walking along the old woodland, originally belonging to medieval castle Cronesteyn, a blackcap sang.
In a ditch, a gadwall duck couple.
In a schoolchildren’s garden, plastic bottles protected plants from being eaten by pheasants.
A greenfinch singing.
Bishop’s weed flowering.
A chiffchaff on a tree.
After some years of absence due to harsh winters, this year fortunately there is a kingfisher nest again.
Black-tailed godwit, redshank and northern lapwing nest year after year on the meadows.
On the other side of the ditch, an Egyptian goose couple and three pheasants.
Next to it, flowering marsh woundwort, mentioned already.
A jay on the other side of the ditch.
11:20: we hear a great spotted woodpecker.
Along the bicycle track, many flowers. Like this grass species.
And this tall oat-grass.
And this English plantain.
