You might see weeds, but I see wild flowers

A morning walk



Had a good morning walk today with Whisky.

One of our usual ambles through Kents Hill, along to The Hilton Hotel down Timbold Drive, and then onto the fields further down.

A good spot behind the tree line on the right, and the field next to Kents Hill wood.
Amongst the trees plenty of Blackbirds, usually Fieldfare, and today, a few Redwing.





Today saw lots of Blackbirds, and even more Magpies.


We carried on past the Open University, and then down along the River Ouse.
A solitary Moorhen, and a lone Grey Heron ................. and then we made our way back towards home.


Cold, but enjoyable.
