Opposite the Amex Stadium

I was back out in the fields today looking for buzzards. Unsuccessfully as it happens, but the woods were coming into their own with the morning sunshine, and the sheep were grazing in the shadow of the Amex Stadium (American Express Community Stadium to give it its full name).

The wood is full of trees. Nothing unusual there, even though a good number are prone. These are both long-time fallers, but they add some character and colour to the woodland floor.

The sheep had obviously had a hard morning grazing. This one was taking a nap when I returned at lunchtime.

A couple of others were hanging out at the bar 😉

So the weather holds up (more or less) for another day. Tomorrow looks good too. This little blue tit hopes it stays that way for a little longer.
