Listening : Toby Hay “The Gathering”
Walked to the top of Coombs Road today .So quiet and peaceful. We were entertained by a nuthatch in an old oak tree .3 Buzzards circled Manners Woods and we spotted a couple of early Red Admirals. Lots of Hawthorn blossom and pussy Willow adorning the hedgerow. Wrens, robins Goldfinches and unusually for Manners wood a pair of ravens! A lovely place to be.

April has blessed us with fine weather but a recurring calf injury has curtailed any serious exploration s. After setting up my installation “Times Past Remembered” at the Old House Museum we managed a couple of walks around town .Much activity in the hedge rows and the rookery nearbye. We also took a trip to enjoy the Tony Cragg sculptures at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park on a glorious day.An added bonus a Brigit Riley as well…
