On the way there the red kites were squabbling with the crows. They really don't get on very well and chase each other away from their nest sites.

|Hard to see, but this is a crow mobbing a red kite and is on it's back|
When we got to the stream, lots of shrimp were scurrying around in the mud and water. There were celandines flowering on the banks of the stream, the flag irises had grown a lot since we were last there and we found ground ivy flowering.
|Enjoying the celandines!|
|Can't resist playing in a waterfall!|
Back at home, the tadpoles had hatched and we found a spider eating a fly!
