The Bumpy Road

A mid afternoon stroll along the bumpy road at Prestwick Carr was very peaceful. We spotted four or five dragonfly hawking along the berry laden hawthorn bushes.
For several minutes we were entertained by a flock of Long-tailed Tits who seem to be still for only only a fraction of a second before being on the the move again.

Bullfinch, Great Tit and Coal Tit were present also. Without bins I was unable to decide which geese were at the top of the horsey fields, although I think there was Canada amongst them, along with a good flock of Lapwing
The water levels are not far below the road level and it seems that the least shower of rain will top it up again but a very enjoyable visit.
