Field of Delights

On Saturady we had a brief look in at Seamer Tip Pools before going out down lanes close to home. Going down the first road, I backed up after spotting some hares and turned into an open gateway where we must have spent nearly half an hour admiring five hares.

Not doing anything exceptional just lazying around, stretching out munching. Photography nigh on impossible as I had driven straight on to the gate opening. A few shots were manged leaning out of the window, trying to hold the camera steady, the edges of some shots had shadows from the car pillar.

We had to move on when a farmer wished to access his field, only a small field but it held the hares, two Pheasants and two Red Legged Partridges.
Later I photographed the Reed Bunting from the car window.

Hi Paul & Jill we went to WE a couple of weeks ago and also saw our first Ruddy for a couple of years.
Thanks Paul, certainly a bonus as we drove around.
