Looking back..3

The beautiful Summer of 2013, gave rise to some wonderful colours in the countryside.  It seemed as if all the colours appeared all at once.  The bright yellows, as usual, predominated - and it wasn't just the flowers which displayed the golden hues, a small, hairy Sycamore Moth caterpillar made a lovely new 'tick' for my life list.
Pink and magenta were common colours too.
Our garden played host to some fantastic visitors during the summer.  A Grey Squirrel helped itself to the bird feeder and butterflies, Moths, spiders, crickets and bugs were everywhere.
Perhaps the most colourful individual to be seen in the area, was a male Mandarin Duck which made its home on the lake at Straw's Bridge foe several weeks.  What a little stunner!
