What with dog sitting and babysitting and bad weather it’s been very difficult to escape! However last week I came across a remarkable duo: not far from the VC , a pair of Redstarts nesting directly opposite a pair of Pied flies on the same tree trunk! Not 2 feet apart. Moreover, there was scarcely any friction-just the odd flutter.Apart from that we scarcely saw a bird-one of those days. Couldn’t even find a single Curlew.
No, not missing a leg: she was just resting.
