Greenflies all over the washing as it hung on the line this morning. Hundreds of them. I ended up ironing several into shirts.

As we headed down the hill into Hebden Bridge for a family bash at the Il Mulino this evening, Jen and I spotted a jackdaw gathering a huge beakful of hair from the back of a neighbour’s horse. They do it every year. Great nesting material. And the horses seem to enjoy it.
