Today was a bit "after the Lord Mayors Show" following yesterday's successes (see yesterday's post for details) We got up quite late and the weather was grey and windy, we looped north of the village up Langton Lane Via the Dung heap across the Turkey/Pheasant Farm ,back across the fields to Cuckfield Road and saw very little, highlights were the Wagtails with 2 Grey and a Pied on the Dung Heap and several Pied on the Turkey Farm, the other major occurrence was the sighting of our first Swallow of the year, Unfortunately I was mid-way over a stile at the time so only managed 4 pics all of which are atrocious but I included them below anyway, on the plus side in the excitement I didn't face-plant over the stile!!!😂
To cheer us up I made an Organic Coffee and Walnut cake which Margie gave 10 out of 10 (was tasty to be fair) pics of that below as well!!
