One of the loveliest sights each day is to watch the birds around the ground. There are blackbirds, finches, birds of prey etc
The compound has got some Green Finches that feed off the insects on has on the salt pile. They take little notice of anyone walking into the compound or working there
The wagtails on the pitch are lovely to watch catching the insects and midgets that live on the grass. The grace of movement is hypnotic and you can easily spend five minutes just watching them moving around the area.
Earlier in the month there were seven of them on the pitch at one time dancing their way around while catching their prey.
Going through the photos from earlier in the week is one of Ian marking the pitch. Zoom into the picture and you will see all the midgets etc in the top left hand corner. It looks like rain there are so many.
The sun may be out but wearing sunglasses can stop them getting in your eyes etc.
