Bird Bath

I was awoken this morning with the sound of much flapping of wings and thought at first that a bird must be trapped but looked out to find a family of blackbirds bathing in the pond.
The continued this activity for around an hour presumably ensuring their feathers were in good condition and free of parasites

Maize field

During our two weeks away on holiday the maize crop in front of our cottage has grown enormously helped by warm sunny weather and showers and is now above our heads as we walk the footpath.

Evening Walks

We have enjoyed some lovely evening walks recently such as this one along the Cotswold Way. As the wind drops, light percolates through the trees, birds sing and all is well in the countryside.  Hope you too are able to make the most of summer.
