a couple of weekends ago. . .
a summery Saturday afternoon at 5 o'clock to be precise
we noticed a visitor in the garden
sitting on the fence post surveying the surrounding field.
Very happy to have his photo taken, he posed this way and that
so the camera caught his best profile
before flying across the field to perch on the roadside fence
where he nearly caused a pile-up as cars slowed in amazement.
After half an hour spent hunting in the field
he had a well earned rest in the oak tree
next to the house
before gracefully swooping down
and silently taking his leave.
Doesn't get much better than that does it?
