NOA Cricket match Burnham Thorpe 20th July

Cricket as it should be played ..... or at least a good time seemed to be had by all. The rain came and went ... and both umpires had to leave the field before the end of the day, to be conveniently replaced by totally unbiased NOA batsmen waiting in the wings !

definitely getting dark ... and wet

cometh the hour ... cometh the rain !!!!

meanwhile with the bird list on the day at 31 a picture taken at Redwell of one of at least 2 Turtle Doves calling on the wires.
