Today rather than mountain biking I had persuaded my hubby to do a walk. We haven't done one for a couple of months now. We chose a walk around Sissinghurst. Having had an early and very dry spring I thought it would be interesting to see how the countryside was coping. Although my grass at home is looking yellow and partly dead the Kent countryside is looking beautiful and green. However, the clay ground amongst the fields was very dry and deep with cracks but it's a haven for wildlife. Herons, skylarks, chaffinches, blackbirds and blue tits are just a few of birds were saw. Our treat today was lots of chirps coming from the side of a foot path. Getting closer we realised the noise was coming from inside a large old fence post. Through a small crack on the side you could just make out three very hungry chicks. No hope of getting a photo we hurried away only to realise we were being watched by a eager parent Blue tit waiting to feed it's recently hatched chicks.
