Today's weather was so good that we decided to go for a walk at Loynton Moss near Eccleshall. We packed a flask and took the cameras with the intention of walking across the reserve and onto the canal side.
Joy - there were kingfishers on the canal. This is my first picture of a kingfisher in flight, you will need a magnifying glass!
We have also seen a siskin in the garden. These are rare visitors and usually only seen in the worst winter weather. This year there has not been a winter to speak off, it has just been wet and cool.
It's only March and the daises are out on the lawn. If you look carefully, you will see the moss starting to come up amongst the grass. The very wet weather and high water table has resulted in moss growing on all of the lawns.
