I stopped for a bit and sat on the bank of a small river and very soon a Heron flew in to hunt, followed by chaffinches then a Grey Wagtail House Martins and some birds a bit like bullfinches. They were all catching mayflies. Some mallards were there as well. Suddenly a panic alarm call by a chaffinch which flew up from a rock in the river and dived into a tree and there flying upstream fast and low came a Sparrowhawk! Without my time with you I would have missed all this, thank you so much for reconnecting me with the natural world.
