Thank you for all the comments on Ollie :) I checked and he did go back to his nest box last night and my neighbour has promised to call me if he poses in a easy to photograph spot again.
The wildlife in my garden are more camera shy - we have a resident grass snake and I've seen it so many time but its just to quick for me to get a picture! I'll keep trying especially as we're promised lots of warm weather later this week and I've spotted his favourite sun-bathing spot!
Anyhow back to yesterday - the morning to be precise. The band were playing in Aldeburgh - an annual engagement - a parade for the newly elected Mayor of the town.
I was there in my role as unofficial band photographer ;)
I took some pics on my phone and whilst I was fiddling with it waiting for the band to come back into the town for coffee, I found a new setting;
Playing on the seafront prior to marching.
Off we go
The Mayor & other members of the town council
There's a little gap whilst most of the parade are in church. The band don't stay for that part - instead we head into town for coffee.
After the church service - the parade forms up again and down the hill they march;
Aldeburgh was looking particularly lovely yesterday - lots of flags and decorations for the forth-coming Jubilee celebrations were appearing;
After the march was over the band played for a short while in front of the Moot Hall;
After that? Well behind the Moot Hall is a rather lovely pub - we might have had a quick drink on the green in front ;)
That's all for tonight - I've a hot date with my sewing machine and crochet hook - we've booked our first weekend away in our new toy and there are things I would like to have finished for that!! Oh and we've booked a summer holiday too - watch out Yorkshire ;)
See you soon
