Clutching At Straws - Marillion

Simply Another Day in Paradise with my friend
Jean Francois.
 DARK SPINACH
 New for the Year
 STRAW UNDERWING
 BULRUSH WAINSCOT
 and
TWIN-SPOTTED WAINSCOT
 After the Moth Traps
 together with J-F we head off into the field.
 At Parley Pond the sky was alive with juvenile
HOUSE MARTIN
an estimated 2 - 300, in flight, on the wires and mobbing Willow Trees.

Seen every day, some of the 
HORSES

which we take for granted and have never featured on video.
Also there, the scented
 WATER MINT
is in full bloom but now time to visit the Common.
On arrival at the Irrigation Pond the sight that met our eyes was one
that we had hoped for since we started keeping records here, a
juvenile
LITTLE GREBE

preening
and

with a Fish.
Seemingly alarmed at our presence, time to retreat!
We didn't want to be to hasty in claiming the 
First Breeding Record for the Property
but this was considered endorsed when we found a second
juvenile on the Gravel Pit this very day!
On to the Heath where the Fruits of the Forest ripen by the day.
