The afternoon sky threatened April showers but failed to deliver. Still looking up, one thing was delivered, a buzzard.

This could or could not have been the promised rough-legged variety the local birder had suggested might be around. Whatever kind he was he did 'hang' a little bit but went off when no rabbits appeared on the ground. Blacka is not a great place for rabbits.

Pipits, however, are well in evidence.

And two stags had been resting, one with new antlers sprouting and the other still content to sport last year's fashion - the new season's delivery having been delayed.
