Summer walk in my Somerset village, Blackcap, Swallows, Painted lady and others for company!

Yesterday afternoon was sunny and hot!
  I decided not to go to any nature reserves, I just grabbed my camera and went for a walk in my Somerset village, walking no further than 600metres from my house!
The pictures I captured prove that you don't have to go far to see and appreciate nature....it's all around you!!
  Go out and enjoy it! :)
