All together now. "Grrrrrrrr".
Hence, the necessity of getting out in the evening for a walk, a walk under blue skies extending to the end of the universe, and under swifts circling manically and dangerously amongst the chimney pots on Millgate. The flocks over Newark are currently 15-20 strong, more than there has been for many years.
I would imagine it's been a good day for butterflies and bees too, although by the time I got out walking there weren't many about, only the odd white fluttering by.
I did manage to get a spot of bee rescuing done again. I found a little tree bumblebee worker stranded on my path, rather livelier than the the red tailed queen I rescued, and was able to move it to safety, and hopefully nourishment, amongst the Polish flowerbeds.
I can only hope I picked the right blooms.
