unsurprisingly very busy yesterday with people out walking kids and having picnics.

on the upside. 3 lazily floating ravens,
1 dipper
and a whinchat sitting on a rock made the stroll in the sun worthwhile.

plenty of swallow, housemartins around,

and lots of the common species in and around the car park .

2 stonechats apparently heading up the valley,
