Sunny Times in Newark and Mansfield

I will make as much use of the sun as I can while it is there, whether I'm at home, or at the hospital. Managed to get a run in this morning, and a walk around Sutton in Ashfield Reservoir in the afternoon. Butterflies fluttering, bees buzzing, flowers in bloom and mummy mallards taking the little ones for a walk.

Out of town, the warm weather has produced thermals for the buzzards to soar upon, mocking the pitiful earthbound humans tied to their microlights and gliding machines. Rabbit kittens watch from the roadside, and the cows cross the road to be milked by the oilseed rape field.
