A ‘wave’ of flames

If you’re anything like me I suspect you’ll need a little cheering up this morning.

Yesterday afternoon I witnessed a ‘wave’ of Flame Robins, moving north along the alluvial terrace in the Mia Mia. Almost all the birds were adult males. It was a wonderful sight!

    Even over here on Dartmoor, the shock waves have hit. So very sorry for my dear country’s environment, it’s creatures future.
    Thankyou for the joy those beautiful birds/your photos bring.
