A shift of focus

Facing a few weeks of immobility owing to a ruptured achilles, I'm not going to be able to do much walking, birdwatching or photography for a while. So I'm going to have to find ways to enjoy wildlife at a somewhat more local level.

This afternoon I lay on the lawn and just watched one patch of earth for half an hour, which I probably haven't done since I was a kid. So much to see - ants, mites, caterpillars, spiders, worms, beetles, grubs, all crawling around amongst the grass - I'm sure there'll be plenty to keep me occupied for a while!
