Thankfully Jumbo wasn't at home.

Had a look at the Baulking Fullers Earth disused Pit today, I parked on the village green rather than alongside the road opposite the mainline Great Western Railway track. This is one of those unusual villages that has no through road and terminates at the end of the green. the footpath to the pit takes you through an avenue of Elephant Grass (Micanthus).
I managed a couple of reasonable photos of Dragonflies and totted up bird counts of  circa two hundred Lesser Black-Backed Gulls, six Little Grebes, thirty Tufted Duck, eight Great Crested Grebe, twenty Pochard, one Chiffchaff, twelve Goldfinch, four Cormorant, forty Mallard, stacks of Coots and around thirty Hirundines mostly House Martin .
