The day after RTDove day. Long after the Red Roses have wilted and the card and chocolate box recycled there will still be a little tick in my little book. Ticks are forever! and alot cheaper than diamonds, at least this one was. I'm not so sure about the Orkney bird.
Rather more local today. After an e'mail from John Harris I walked from the Old Eds. Rugby club at Weddington to Caldecote and back along a stretch of the river Anker. Nothing particularly interesting until I got to the cultivated fields beyond the old railway line. There was a mixed flock of Yellowhammer, Goldfinch, Chaffinch and Reed Bunting in the bushes on the Railway embankment but also a flock of over 50 Skylarks in the field.
