The clangers are back! I was delighted to go into the meadow yesterday morning and spot these two, no, not having a bit of nookie, but giving each other piggy-back rides! They were a bit reluctant at first to participate in a photo shoot, but I managed to persuade them to co-operate, and they agreed to keep still for a short while whilst I took a few images, before disappearing into the long grass.

In the Spring a fuller crimson comes upon the robin's breast;
In the Spring the wanton lapwing gets himself another crest;

In the Spring a livelier iris changes on the burnish'd dove;
In the Spring a clanger's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.
