It was a wet evening with enough time for a quick check on the ponies at Prestwick Carr, depending on where they were and how visible they were. A quick check from the gate revealed the full complinent nearby and apparently content if a little damp.
It’s often tempting to leave it at that, particularly in rain but wit half an hour to kill a wander over seemed like a worthy thing to do. The walk was rewarded with some of the local wildlife. Two wheatears flew low over the field alighting on molehills, their white rump distinguishing them in the dull light. They will be heading into the hills this was just a call on the way. A skylark overhead provided accompaniment, first one then a second joining in.
And the ponies were all fine too.
