Burnt potatoes

This afternoon I put my lunch on the stove and I took a stroll through the garden with my dog. I found a new damselfly and bird and got so excited trying to photograph them I burnt my potatoes!

Brown hooded kingfisher

Its been raining cats and dogs for more than a week, including floods in the region. So the little bit of a break in the weather this morning was very welcome and this visitor even more welcome – a brown hooded kingfisher this time.
