We went to Fowlmere this morning, before it started raining, in the hope of migrants. Virtually everyone else who's been out today has seen an Osprey, but we didn't - had to make do with plenty of Chiffchaffs and a meagre scattering of Blackcaps.
The old watercress beds at Fowlmere, where crystal-clear water bubbles up from the ground. We saw Brown Trout in one of the streams, which I think was a fish tick for me.

'a meagre scattering of Blackcaps' is a beautiful expression! Should copy it!ReplyDelete
