Day Ten, which means we are a third of the way through. I hope plenty of you are on with your own 30 Days Wild?
A slightly more conventional post today, with a few photos from a lunchtime walk round Heslington Lake.
I always think I’m lucky to have this at work as it usually provides something interesting.
But today the bright and warm sun seemed to have sent everything scampering for shelter, or at least shade.
But some intrepid birds were still grazing
And others were simply soaking up the sun, limiting grazing to whatever could be reached from a prone position.
There was little going on at the surface of the water, and not a sign of usual ever-presents like the Great-crested Grebes.
What was moving across the surface in huge numbers were clouds of midges.
And this in turn attracted large carp to the surface to feed.
Finally, there were a wide array of plants looking great in the sun, and attracting a range of insects.
Few words today, pictures often speak for themselves.
