As you will have gathered, the last few days have been a bit hectic, what with the launch of the new FreeFrom Food Awards website and the opening of the 2021 awards. (I am delighted to say that we had had eight entries by the end of day one!) So I fear that I have not even got to the heath for a walk – a terrible admission.
However, following on from my slow walk round the boating pond last week, here is a contemplation of the Bird Sanctuary Pond late one evening. The crows (rooks?) were definitely having their evening chinwag – they were positively deafening. You will notice some ducks early on but in the latter half of the video notice the oak tree under which I was standing dive bombing both me and the pond with acorns. You can hear them hitting the ground and splashing into the pond and you can see the spreading circles of ripples from where they hit.
