It's really here! We had a wonderful sunny day in Kent for the generic family Birthday, 5 altogether in 3 weeks. It was good to see everyone, and Rosey just back from Antarctica cooked a lavish lunch for us all, which we had to walk off.
Amongst other treasures we found a puddle full of newts and water-fleas, no doubt yummy for the newts.
I'm told by the experts this is a female siskin, beautiful.
