most mornings over the past week or so but not surprisingly I’ve not seen anyone else apart from plot neighbour Trevor. Last Saturday morning, which was sunny, we were chatting when he pointed out a Red Kite that was circling overhead. The white under-wing markings and tail shape made it easy to identify. We got an idea of how large it was as a couple of crows started mobbing it. Trevor told me that he’s been seeing them fairly often this year, although it’s the first one that I’ve seen.
On Monday morning this was the view across the allotments towards the tall white willows in the adjacent ecology park.
I was pleased to find a copy of the 2019 Chiltern Seeds catalogue on the doormat when I got home on Saturday morning. Since then I’ve been doing some armchair gardening browsing through it, and will place an order early in the new year.
Have a good weekend!
