Cricket

A buzzard was calling at about 11.30 am this morning. Went to the postbox this afternoon and saw some ripe blackberries on a patch of waste ground outside someone’s garden fence. A good crop of rowanberries on all the trees and the lime flowers have set seed. A Green Bush Cricket seems to be living on a Skimmia plant in the garden and in the evening I found a blue damselfly roosting on one of the birch trees. It was perfectly settled and didn’t seem to mind being examined at close range.
