A bleak and wet morning has given way to a very sunny but windy afternoon. Nipping in to the back garden to top up the feeders I hear a Skylark calling. I look up to see it being pursued by a female Merlin. Fab! A chase ensues and the Merlin doesn't seem to have too much difficulty in simply plucking the Skylark from the air during a fantastic jink! Bloody marvelous! As ever, a prolonged spell in the garden such as topping up the feeders, means I have a trusty pair of Leica's dangling around my neck so I'm always ready to enjoy things to the max! (wasn't that a Pepsi ad?).
