Best Garden Tick Ever!
Whilst rummaging around through pads, gloves, whites and cricket jumpers I noticed a streamline silhouette ducking and diving over the field at the back of the house, the very field shown on the header to this blog. It took the appearance of a large swift and immediately got my pulse racing, even more so when I’d sprinted inside to find my binoculars? How come there never close to hand when you really need them!!! I nearly fell down the stairs from trying to get back outside too quickly, with ‘don’t fly off, don’t fly off’ echoing in my mind, I was in time. With binoculars raised my suspicions were confirmed, a Hobby! Get in! Best garden tick I’ve ever had, fact! It hung around for a few more minutes before drifting off in the direction of Shelley High School. It was a real treat. It was the uplifting moment I needed, to raise spirits from last night, after enduring 90 minutes of the worst football I have ever seen!
