What a difference a day makes, or even just a morning. After last night's storm and this morning's rain, the sun finally came out this afternoon so I shifted my long sit to after lunch. The sun was warm despite the wind that whipped at my hair. The birds sounded different today, further away, not the riot of sound you get in the morning. There were the usual suspects - cackling magpies, clicking rooks and whistling finches. I confess, I found it difficult to concentrate on any one of them today, my mind full of to do lists and the stories I'm rehearsing this week, but it was good to get out!
