Two blogs for the price of one today as both are quite brief.
Nothing was done on Day 27 as it mainly involved our 6hr journey back from Wales to Lincolnshire.The only photos I took were the Red Kites seeing us off in the gloomy morning at Gigrin Farm.
So goodbye to another Welsh adventure and home to work and find Nature nearer to home.
Beauty By The Roadside....
We did hope to meet up with a friend at RSPB Bempton Cliffs this morning to see the Gannets and more Puffins.Unfortunately the toll of the 6hr journey yesterday meant another 3hr round trip today was pushing it a bit too far :( My friend did go and had a great time though :)
Lucky me got to spend 10-15 minutes at the side of a busy road into town on a grass verge and a bit of waste ground ;)
Thankfully the local council saw sense on their recent grass cutting expedition and actually went around the areas of wildflowers on the grass verge near the roundabout.
There were some strange looks from people driving by wondering why I had my head in the flowers lol
On the opposite side of the road from here is a larger area of waste ground filled with Thistles, Poppies, Ragwort and other assorted plants, all next to a Morrisons and retail park.
Due to the drizzly weather there were not as many insects about as I'd hoped for but we did see Large Skippers.....
I was happy enough to get to spend 15 minutes wandering through the unexpected meadow to calm myself before the hassle of grocery shopping lol
I am hoping to be out more tomorrow despite the weather forecast predicting heavy rain all day.
