I could hear a neighbour's cockerel crowing, wild geese were squabbling on the fish pond across the road, plus there was a wonderful dawn chorus. It was unbelievably noisy as the birds seemed to hurl insults at one another.
|So much scribble in the sky!|
Gradually the light increased and the noise diminished a little as the birds got down to the serious business of feeding.
|One bed down, eight or nine to go!|
We spent today doing lots of digging, tidying up the winter debris and generally finding plenty of outdoor work. It was a beautiful day, mild and sunny and it felt good to be outside.
I found some spare time to play with the camera - during my tea-breaks, of course.

While I was working outdoors I was delighted to hear the drumming of a Greater Spotted Woodpecker,
he often comes into the garden for food during winter, although I haven't seen him much in the last few weeks.
I found time to sit and have a chat with the hens, and while I was with them I spotted this ladybird tucked deeply and snugly into a tree trunk, so I photogaphed it using the macro lens. I wonder whether woodpeckers eat them?
|Lets go for a walk.|
Harry offered to take the old girls for a walk around the wood - they never walk this neatly for me!
|The end of a busy day - mustn't let Harry sleep for too long,|
he has to go home.
We came indoors for some tea and cake, all became very quiet, and this is how I found my three boys a short time ago!
I hope you have all enjoyed your Sunday as much as we enjoyed ours.
