A perfect moment in time.

Whilst we were moored near Yelvertoft, there was a splendid sunset to be seen, so I took my camera and stood out on the back counter of the boat to watch the sun go down.

Whilst admiring the glory of the sun going down, I closed my eyes and just listened to the sounds and took in the smells around me. The scent of Honeysuckle filled the air and yet I could not see it anywhere, so the scent had travelled on this balmy evening. Listening I could hear the sound of traffic, but this was drowned out by the evening song of a Song Thrush, Chaffinch, baby Blue Tits calling their parents for their last feed of the day, a Blackbird giving a warning call and a Reed Bunting calling from the reeds opposite the boat. It really does not get any better than this. Just by closing my eyes I could really take in the sounds and smells around me. So many people miss out on so much of the wildlife we have, I am so lucky to see it everyday and I never take it for granted.
