  8. That is such a tranquil place and I would love to stroll along by that river. I'm envious that you have seen demoiselles already. The swallow photo is amazing. :-)

  11. Lovely testimony of nature around you Roy!
    Wonderful you managed to 'catch' the Golfinch and the Dunnock, both are usually quite shy!
    Hoping your weather is better than ours... mud slides in our village :(
    Take good care!

  13. Hi Roy, this has been a lovely catch-up. A great pleasure to see all these lovely nature photos. I am also assuming that the old photo on your profile page is you and your English Rose. Delightful picture of you both.
