The Buzzard on the post pic had me in tears of joy Nan. Wow, that is such an evocative pic. I need to join you on one of these early morning walks of yours. O/\

We get them on the headland near here in Spring & Aurumn Nan. They are so tame. Go for it. You will not be disappointed. O/\

Lot of moves at the pond... a Western Marsh Harrier was very busy... and finished to catch one of these little birds... and ate it in the reed near by the shore... almost visible, which bird... I don't know.
