Taking down an exhibition is quick and easy. I shall miss my weekly drives to Newark Park because my route is beautiful. On Saturday, driving in, a buzzard flew out of the woods and low over the car. Yesterday I saw another smaller bird of prey chasing a flock of pigeons, I don't know what it was just small, fast and angular. The fields are now turning blue around Chavenage- linseed - and edged with ox-eye daisies and other wild flowers. Swallows were skimming the field for insects.
