Duncan started the day working on a report on Wade’s Green before we got out to do our daily session of trail work. Today we re-found the sign for the Crossing Place Trail and cleared the first section of the path itself. A much needed bit of work but not greatly exciting.
We called in at the caves with the intention of working out whether it is worth doing a little leaflet to the self-guided walk in the caves.
Instead our attention was taken by the sight of a tiny hummingbird, or more accurately two of them. Both were female and supposedly much drabber than the male but still with iridescent green feathers on their backs. They are medium-sized in terms of hummingbirds but that makes them only about 10cm long. In flight the wings are a blur even when the bodies are motionless.
