An evening stroll.
A selection of birds enjoying warm early evening sunshine along the river near Hackness. The common whitethroat uttering its deep churr warning, a young song thrush sunning itself, not as wary yet as the adults. A distinctive call high in an alder shows the male yellowhammer, half asleep almost but calling repeatedly to another male nearby, quite a stunning bird! Finally the male blackbird perches in the open singing away, oblivious to all. Time flies!
