Where the Bugs are

    Anticipating a cooler day, as it had been the day before, I donned a light jacket for my wander along the riverbank – mistake, it was ‘boil in a bag’ time. Fortunately, many others had obviously made the same (wrong) assumption so I was not alone.

    Plenty of little fellas out and about – sparrows, wagtails, Sardinian warblers, blackcap, black redstart and goldfinch plus a few blackbirds and spotless starlings.

    For a while, this bare tree was a hive of activity, with birds coming and going almost constantly. Seems it was where the bugs were.

    As usual, had to avoid being caught out by the raging torrent…
