    That's one of my most favourite places on the Chase.

    If you are really lucky you might see a Marsh Harrier there, not that i have been so.

    Last time i was there i was there for an age - there was a Nightingale singing to the left and just back a bit, it was a day that looked like yours, i lay down and listened to him belt it out. Blue sky above and music below and it was good.

    EDIT: I've somehow strayed from the "Today I saw" thread?

    Actually they appear to have been damselflies?

    Anyway, also saw a few of the more usual flappy buggers (bird number 2 had also spotted the damselflies).

    Now just 2 seconds off my 10k target, was only my 4th ran this year but a full minute off the last reliable time (my watch was playing silly buggers on Thursday so can't use that result).
