Peach Melba Sky
An inaugural post - my first ever on any blog. I chose to live in Ely because of the fantastic opportunities to experience the seasons and all the birds they bring within an active migration flyway. There are always great experiences to be had out on these plains and a fenland safari is a treat indeed. I had a little stroll down Roswell Pits on tuesday in a snatched half hour after work and before the nursery run. Kingfishers were very vocal, presumably on territory. Blackcap and Chiffchaff were a singing and streams of gulls were heading to the Washes roosts. Out on the fen beyond the beet pits there were 3 Whoopers Swans and a few more Mute Swans. The dropping sun set the sky awash and slipped toward the horizon amidst a beautiful soft peach melba glow.
