This bird box (one of two we have here) was put up 3 years ago and within 2 days a family moved in – here’s this year’s residents. They are busy little critters and quite hard to capture in a picture. #bluetits #bluetitchicks #springwatch
The walk in Kinloch Woods is one of my favourite short walks, allowing Maisie and I to stretch our legs for an hour. During the day we see a couple of like-minded dog walkers and those off to see the abandoned village of Leitir Fura further down the track. In the evenings we see no one, and have the walk, the sunshine and the views to ourselves.
