Many thanks for your kind encouraging comments and votes... especially to Carol G for the UA. Very chuffed to get one from a critter expert!
my apologies to all bird specialists, this is not perfect. On the way to the farm to get the milk this kite was cycling higher and higher. It was quite grim and overcast, but in this second there was a bit of light. So here is my first ever bird in flight.
Never forget your 600mm when you get milk and cream.
the second and third picture is another first for me... Corinne found in a flowerpot these 'cigars' made by bees, they contain larvae. What is it exactly? Has anyone out here ever seen this?
