This is the 3rd Happy Place to feature this week and it is the fields behind my house.
I went there this morning and saw many birds but the noisiest were these Siskins who scrape and grind by way of birdsong….not the most lovely sound! They are, on the other hand, very lovely themselves!
These next 2 photos were taken about 15 minutes earlier when the sky was very grey!
These next 2 photos were taken just when the hawthorns were coming into leaf earlier in the year……
