Our granddaughter, Nyah, stays with us most weekends and I asked her if she wanted to come with me in the woodland while I did some birding.
She wasn’t very keen but, after persuasion, she decided to join me.
I let her play in the brook and left her to her own devices.
She loved it!
It took me back more than fifty years because that’s the sort of thing I did when I was a child.
