Thursday and Friday were two lovely warm and sunny June days. A nice change from the cool and windy weather of earlier in the month.
We made the most of the fine weather with a visit to the plot on Thursday to plant out our runner beans, climbing French beans and sweetcorn.
While we were having a well earned cup of coffee we spotted a wren flitting about in our redcurrant bushes. Unusually for a wren it perched on top of a fence post long enough for us to get some decent photos.
I did have a little bit of a concern that it might get trapped in the redcurrant bushed once our netting is in place to stop the blackbirds raiding the ripening berries. My concerns were soon dismissed as I saw this tiny little bird fly through the chicken mesh netting with no problems at all. A reminder of just how tiny this bird is.
Friday turned out to be the warmer of the two days and we paid a visit to RSPB Old Moor.
This lapwing was having a bad hair day or perhaps it was drying off after a bath.
