This week is Candlemas week in Exploring Nature With Children, and it has come blustering in, all sunshine and wild winds.
The pigeons were hungry!
We were thrilled to see that Swiff, the pigeon who had been painted, was returning to normal. We noted that he has also been tagged, which is very interesting. We hope that someone is keeping an eye on his well-being. Here he is; the white bird on the right.
A few males were ‘strutting their stuff’, puffing up their feathers and chasing the females.
The geese were particularly noisy today also, so perhaps they are pairing up too?
I spied the Moorhen nesting over on the far side of the pond, patiently observing the comings and goings of the other birds.
Glorious daisies fully open to the sun!
Our nature journals this week
Rose completed two entries. Her favourite pigeon, and slugs.
I went with the Candlemas theme, including my laundry on the washing line. Such a windy, sunshiny day!
How was your walk this week?
