The beautiful colours of nature.
I went bird ringing for the first time in ages this morning. It was great. It was not my woods though. The day was warm but cloudy, and there was a slight shimmer to everything. Willows and reeds, where I am used to hazels and oaks.

The upside to that was that nearly every bird was exciting. When you're used to woodland birds and go ringing in the fens you see all sort of new things. Even the 15th sedge warbler was still exciting me. And I saw reed buntings And bestist of all, I held a Kingfisher!

Tonight, cycling home, there was a glorious rainbow.


Not sure why I felt I had to post links to random bird and rainbows pictures though :-)

Nature is pretty cool, really.

Good Luck at the meeting!

How did you get close enough to a Kingfisher to hold it? Birds are pretty frisky things in my (very limited) experience.

I'm a bird ringer, it's part of the job description. :)

Ahh! Until I followed the link my mind was trying to cross bell ringing with bird watching.

The rainbow was fantastic, the best I've seen in ages and ages. Going down Mill Road it nicely framed the (colorfuly painted..) bridge as I went over it, and by the time I'd reached Cherry Hinton it was going from horizon to horizon (well, rooftops permitting, but they permitted relatively well for in town) and had a clearly visible secondary. It helped that much of my route had the sun directly behind me.

Mmm, indeed. Too many people don't notice. I wish I saw more Nature in my day-to-day work.
