A huge amount of activity goes on as the sun heads for the horizon. This evening I noticed flocks of jackdaws circling. Quite a few of them were carrying nuts in their beaks. They made dramatic silhouettes against the late, pale afternoon sky.
Crows were feasting on sweet chestnuts.
The swans were stretching their wings.
And the seagulls were catching the rays of the setting sun on the undersides of their wings as they looped over the ponds.
