Hooray its the weekend! We headed over to the big field behind the house to walk the dog, we picked up a pine tree branch and elder branch to wave in the wind on the way.
Child and dog let loose on the field!
The grass is just left to grow here and at the moment it’s filled with buttercups and cow parsley. If its possible to zoom into this photo you’ll see about 30 starlings performing a mini murmuration!
I love the open sky at the field, there are lots of swallows/swifts/housemartins (they move too quickly for me to identify!) so we spend some time watching their aerial acrobatics. We also spotted one of my favourite birds – an oystercatcher – flying over us. They’ve got such a recognisable cry and it makes me feel like a proper birdwatcher when I know that one is in the vicinity!
Today’s embroidery is a sketch of the field:
