Back to my Horsefield adventures, though, I had taken my birding lens with me and had high hopes of some bird photographs. Initially I was disappointed but then I noticed when walkers disturbed linnets in the hedges and brambles they flew calling grumpily as is their wont out onto the field. I found that by careful stalking I was able to get close enough for some photography and was pleased with the result. In the same way I was able to capture images of the skylarks on the field.
Making my way home, I was delighted when a chiffchaff briefly showed itself well in the trees on the edge of the woodland burial ground.
