All hot air
I was really surprised to see this hot air balloon sailing over the park as I was on my way to the reserve this morning, as the weather was okay but not that great! It hadn't taken off from the Rugby Club though, but come quite a bit further so maybe conditions were good enough on ascension. It did get over the trees, but only with what looked like a little difficulty.
I had a lovely time after this looking for birds. I saw the buzzard again, close but not quite close enough, and the small bird in Extras, which was also too far away. The nearest I can guess is that it's a whinchat, but I'd love you to tell me if you know better ;))
UPDATE: Diane2104 reckons a stonechat, and as she's usually right about such things, I'll go with that! Thanks, Diane
However, even with the teleconverter, I am getting frustrated with too many shots being taken from too far away and the fact that the weight of my big lens seems to be doing my back in. I know, always moaning!!
The title of this can be taken anyway you like. If you wish to connect it with current UK politics, that's fine by me ;)))
Enjoy your evening and the rest of the weekend, folks xx
