Quick bike trip

Scuttled along the cycle path by the lake 730pm - noticed a very drab, very brown looking duck, which I figured for a drake Mallard in eclipse. Poor old think, imagining going bald for the summer every year!

Beacon Hill, well as usual the bike down the shale path was rather hairy when I tried to stop, but it was a glorious evening to just stand and hang out here in the sun for a little while - whites and meadow browns in large numbers, as ever denying me the easy shot! Some sort of moth was out early too, a typically shy looking grey brown creation. Incidentally, late at night by my place, there are some really big ones wafting about, haven't seen a bat take one yet. Really hoping though...
