An excellent morning on the bike.
Heather and I had an excellent morning ride today. Out via Waltham and Brigsley, along Barton Street and back via Waith Beck and Brigsley again. Willow warbler, chiffchaff and black cap all heard and good sightings of kestrel and buzzard with another raptor that I thought may not have been a buzzard but which disappeared before I could ID it. Lots of cowslips and campion with cow parsley and hawthorn blossom turning the hedgerows into a froth of white. We enjoyed coffee and shortbread by Waith Beck on of the Lincolnshire Chalk streams.
