Got up at 2.30am drove 90 miles to Broadstairs in Kent and was rewarded with this, think I shall call it "Renewable"
(For the avoidance of doubt had to go to Broadstairs to check on an un-occupied property)

Hi, yellow plum harvesting by machine.

The tree is shaken hydraulically. The plums fall on the green canvas:

A small conveyor brings them to the crate:

I noticed last night that the Corona beer ads on TV aren't using the word Corona any more. They just show the crown logo.
Hi, I can see that many people might not enjoy this beer. --- Maybe, the name will become politically incorrect in future ... ---

Hi, a walk in the fields before the heat set in. Up to 38 degrees Celsius ... ---

Wine is growing, red wine actually. Vintners are worried about the harvest. Restaurants won't buy much because of the corona slowdown. So, most of it will be used for disinfectants .... :

Butterflies are quite rare (due to pesticides used by the farmers) :

(I took these pics with my pocket camera SONY NEX5N and the Pentaflex Auto-Color 1,8/50. This lens came with the PORST (practica) CX-6 I bought as a student in 1973.

This was my first "real" camera. The lens is still good, even by today's standards ... )

I'm new at this bird stuff. I'm having a blast, though. Found a website that has a birding checklist for this area by season. They told me, this time of year, I could expect gulls and herons. That's about it. And so, dear reader, that's what you can expect as well.
