No I have not been to Paris again but I did put a pic up on the main site of which Nick will tell me “it is not a bird”. He is getting as good at ID’s as I am.
This little fellow was only about an inch long and I first saw him about 6 weeks ago jump out of the way of the mower. He did it again last weekend so I got out my camera and took a few shots inb the sun whilst he was happy to pose.
Hope you like the snaps -
