Purple Patch

Thinking that Spring had past me by, I paid another visit to the patch this morning. With very little moving offshore I put the scope away and walked down bread Lane and up to the old camp site.  What made be turn round at the end of the track I will never no, but as I did I caught the sight of a male Golden Oriole flying into the tree tops at Kents Cottages, moving through the trees high in the canopy until lost to view. Spent the next hour looking with no joy, but made my morning.
