A very gloomy morning today but I went for a walk around the cemetery returning via the Horsefield. Everywhere is now totally sodden and the cemetery and parts of the Horsefield are now flooded.
Just as I came out of the Woodland Burial Ground I disturbed a sparrowhawk. I have now seen this bird on the last 3 visits which is encouraging. Maybe a photo will be possible eventually if I can see it before it sees me - difficult I know.
A heron on the fields round the Horsefield is not something that I expect to see but this morning there was one standing disconsolate and hunched on the edge of the flooded field. As I walked over Peaks Tunnel I was pleased to come across a flock of Long-Tailed Tits.
