I was working this morning... these images were taken on my way home.
I work in the city of Manchester but have a lovely countryside commute for 20 out of the 25 miles I travel.
Cheshire is a flat county so I get to see some fantastic "big" skies.
At the junction of a busy main road I have to cross is this rookery.
The birds have been so active recently... renovating their nests and breeding.
I spent a while this afternoon... taking pics and video... hopefully there will be something worth sharing.
A bit slower to leaf... the tree that produced the most post comments ever on my little blog.
It's progress will be followed.
This is in the neighboring field... it's actually two trees... one behind the other.
My car was parked by the hedge on the right... it's next to a farmyard.
As I crossed the stile the farmer was preparing to walk (run) his flock along the lane to another field.
His wife was guarding the lane next to my car to stop them taking the wrong route.
Tally Ho!... it was great to see.
I was surrounded for a few seconds as they ran up the lane.
A hundred yards further along they were diverted left into a field.
I often have to stop for cattle crossing as I travel to work... this was the first time for sheep.
Fingers crossed for decent pics of the roosting rooks.
