Magic Carpet Ride - Steppenwolf

 A fair old day yesterday which would have been perfect were it not for that still persisting nor-easterly wind, but have to start by climbing into the confessional. Stood at just a little more than the regulation Social Distance with one of my highly valued Mentors he went through a few Moths with me including what was added as Ringed Carpet on Friday’s post which in fact was a f.f.y.

and with the appropriate ammendment having been made this is the f.f.y.

During the process we also added a high flying
which had it not been in 'full voice' would have sauntered passed unoticed.
Also from the Heath you can almost set your watch by it as the first Skylarks start singing so the Airport Authorities

Maybe? this does no harm but like the nettle spraying why could it not be done
late Feb early March?
Also there, for me at least,
Pride of Place
had to go to this male
in full voice and undertaking a little beak cleaning in the process, while
Cute Value
had to go to this
sat atop the flowering Gorse bush and to end,
Remiss Again
as we might have published this clip 3 days ago when one of the
still sitting on c7 eggs as far as we know and still considered to be 2 male birds,
found one of them building a second nest and on the following morning
sitting on it - "strange brew kill what's inside of you" - Cream!
