    Many thanks! From where I was standing (in flood water) they were just little brown jobs. My camera got a closer view and then my Collins bird guide got me as far as suspecting pipitry.

    I had a wet walk up Aylesbury vale as the light faded. Met a raven, some herons, a barn owl, some yellowhammers, redwings, wigeon and these chaps on the fence - pipits?

    I don’t think so. It’s one of the normally less visible inhabitants of what is known locally as the tractor field, as its most obvious resident (apart from John in his mud barn) is this lovely red Nuffield. The digger has been almost completely hidden, but there are two artic trailers in the trees behind it.

    Mrs Ludd was not so amused when I allowed a Luddlet to run amok with clippers. This is about two weeks on from the attack. You can just make out some hair reappearing at the sides.

    Just finished M John Harrison’s “The sunken land begins to rise again”. Superb and disorientating. At times like Ackroyd or Sinclair but with a real sense of dislocated identities and lack of any certainty. You start off thinking you will discover something “real” within the narrative and then you discover that’s really not what the book is about at all.

    I’ve yet to meet one, unless you can get a HP Laserjet 4 that can talk to a modern computer and for which you can still get toner. We had one from about 1993 and it lasted many years. Then computers got too clever for it or something, and we switched to something new and crap.

    Ah, definitely wren. And pike. Wow. I’ve seen a cormorant tackle an eel but a pike is in a different league.

    Amazing shots - that looks like a jack pike! And might that wren be something else, a chiffchaff maybe?
