Baya weaver
India,Rajkot,04-04-2017.

The baya weaver (Ploceus philippinus) is a weaverbird found across the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Flocks of these birds are found in grasslands, cultivated areas, scrub and secondary growth and they are best known for their hanging retort shaped nests woven from leaves. These nest colonies are usually found on thorny trees or palm fronds and the nests are often built near water or hanging over water where predators cannot reach easily. They are widespread and common within their range but are prone to local, seasonal movements mainly in response to rain and food availability.

Among the population variations, three subspecies are recognized. The nominate race philippinus is found through much of mainland India while burmanicus is found eastwards into Southeast Asia. The population in southwest India is darker above and referred to as subspecies travancoreensis.

These are sparrow-sized (15 cm) and in their non-breeding plumage, both males and females resemble female house sparrows. They have a stout conical bill and a short square tail. Non-breeding males and females look alike, dark brown streaked fulvous buff above, plain (unstreaked) whitish fulvous below, eyebrow long and buff coloured, bill is horn coloured and no mask. Breeding males have a bright yellow crown, dark brown mask, blackish brown bill, upper parts are dark brown streaked with yellow, with a yellow breast and cream buff below..[Wikipedia].[Photo© - Raju Karia].

While in Sussex last year I visited the National Trust property at Sheffield Park. What a stunning place. In late summer / early autumn the colours were fantastic.

Blüte des Weinbergpfirsiches -- Blossom of a vineyard peach

Diese eher südländische Frucht gedeiht in Deutschland nur in den südlicheren Flusstälern, insbesondere dort, wo auch Weinbau stattfindet. An der Mosel mit seinem ebenfalls sehr mildem Klima wird der Rote Weinbergpfirsich angebaut, bevorzugt auf ehemaligen Weinlagen, die aufgegeben wurden. Durch Förderung des Landers Rheainland-Pfalz ist der Baum mittlerweile - besonders an der unteren - Mosel recht verbreitet und sticht mit seinen intensiv rosa bis fast roten Blüten besonders ins Auge. Die rotfleischigen Früchte, im Aroma intensiver als normale Pfirsiche, werden zu Likör, Brandt, Fruchtaufstrich usw. verarbeitet und sind nicht nur bei den Einheimischen beliebt.

Die Blütezeit ist mittlerweile so gut wie vorbei, ich hatte Glück, in etwas höherer Lage noch einige Blüten fotografieren zu können.
