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.
