  4. Delightful and relaxing as always. I just love your narrating voice, so calm and clear, with just the right touch of wry humour.

    I am very glad to see that the little Mandarin is perfectly able to hold his own even against Moorhens (so they're not coots, which would be a greater achievement, but still).

    The Red Arrows put on a welcome, surprising appearance. England is the best possible land for both bird-watching and plane-spotting.

    1. ​Rarest aircraft seen over the park: a De Havilland Dragon Rapide, about five years ago. Several of these 1930s twin-engined biplane mini-airliners are still airworthy. and used for pleasure jaunts.

    2. Wow, the only time I have every seen a Dragon Rapide was in an aircraft museum. I am so envious - England has such great air festivals, and such love for their historical aircrafts. My husband and I are great fans of plane-spotting, as well. Anything that flies is fine with us.
