I didn’t need the alarm this morning. I was naturally up about 6.15 and, after a cup of tea, I was in the car and on my way to a brook.
It’s a tiny tributary of another brook, which then through a series of other waterways, eventually makes its way into the Bristol Channel.
I heard my first chiffchaff of the year today and when I arrived at the water’s edge, a pair of mallards flew off.
I regularly see kingfishers but it’s the first time I’ve seen ducks on there.
