The Hubs and I had a lovely walk this afternoon. Starting in Long Marston, across fields and along the canal back to the car. The weather was fine and sunny, we heard so may birds singing that we couldn't identify and met some rather shy piglets and cows.
Along the towpath we surprised this heron as he sat watching the water for fish. He was the second one we saw in just a few minutes, or may be the same one twice.
Four miles later, starving and thirsty we went into the Queens Head at Long Marston for some light refreshment. A pint of stella and a scotch egg with HP sauce later all was well with the world.
