Another Lockdown week goes past. We enjoyed our 13th parkrun quiz this morning, so that's a quarter of a year with no parkrun and no lots of other things.
But people are doing a bit more, so the return to a more normal life will slowly pick up pace from now on, we hope.
Looking for 'content' for today's posting, I decided to insert a picture from exactly ten years ago. The closest I could get was 12 June, shortly after our return from a lovely break in Mallorca with the Roberts family.
We were at Dunham Massey, which today probably looks very similar to this ten year old image.
Meanwhile, at home we sadly don't have any swifts this year, and we have struggled with the raucous racket of the local magpies, who seem to be flourishing. But just now, pride of place has to be given to the house sparrows, whose nests under our neighbour's eaves seem to be producing hordes of cheerful fledglings. They all look very well fed, airworthy and clean after dunking themselves in next door's bird bath, so hopefully a good number will look after themselves and survive. Their chatty demeanour makes a very pleasant change from the magpies!
Here's my best effort for today. Our south facing garden isn't amenable to taking pictures of sparrows perched in trees with the sun directly behind them!
