East of Eden
A late afternoon wander along the local track at East Holywell was very quiet, with just a couple of dog walkers, a burberry of chavs, a Woodcock fly-by, and good numbers of Blackbirds raiding the Hawthorn berries. It was, however, quiet a worry to see just how many Ash trees there are around here. If the dreaded die-back fungus gets here, it's going to change the landscape.
Bullfinch was my first sighting here, but better still was a garden tick as I returned to find a Willow Tit on the peanut feeder!
As a distant storm headed for Teeside, a skein of Pink-footed Geese flew over into the sunset. Nice :)
