The river banks have been cleared of debris and some topsoil by recent flooding.
This has exposed some bluebell bulbs which will probably be eaten by the deer during the winter.
They are partial to these bulbs and muntjac deer (which we don't see often) can cause serious damage
even to well established areas of bluebells.

Seeing songbirds in the garden is nice but I much prefer to see them out and about in the woods.
