Sheltering from the winds in the woods this afternoon, I happened upon some rather stunning tree bark. The first one is, I think, an elderly birch…
..but I have no idea about number two….
…or, come to that, bark three – except that I can see a a small and well disguised lizard running up it…
A bit further on there were a couple of birds in full song. Since the spring courting season has morphed into summer, they have not been so much in evidence so it was lovely to hear them again.

Emerging onto the open heath, the wind was certainly ‘going it’ – and I apologise that my phone picks up far too much of the sound.
However, the winds had certainly driven the hordes off the heath. Who would believe that this was the same boating pond that was so jammed with bodies a few days ago that you could not see the grass.
