Hedgelaying has been top of the pile recently , and so it will remain next week too , but today I did manage a look around the Common , and a check on the female Long-tailed Duck on the Trout Fishery at Hayes Farm .The Common produced a few fungi , which included ,
The Trout Fishery was quieter than previous visits , but the female Long-tailed Duck is still in residence , and looking very happy in he environment , constantly diving to feed . The better weather
Apart from the hedge itself , the only interest yesterday came when a Red Kite flew directly overhead . With a chainsaw running and with ear defenders on , I knew nothing about it , till it was well out of sight .
