Crafty Green Boyfriend has been most impressed with all my stories of my lunchtime walks through the fields near my office so today I took him there so he could see for himself! He also took the photos that I've posted here.
I had hoped that we would see good numbers of house martins and swallows as there are good numbers of them round here but we only saw one swallow, flying low over the fields.
We were however delighted to see a bird that I've never seen around these fields before and which is struggling across the UK.
windhovering - a kestrel hangs above shimmering fields of wheat.
if anyone has any idea what type of butterfly or moth this caterpillar will grow up to be, please let me know!
