From Yesterdays Walk

A few pictures from a chilly walk yesterday, including a new one for me the long tailed tit. These are quite a cute bird. They seem to come in three’s or fours and are quite nervous usually, but this one did pose long enough for me to get the iron giant almost into focus.

I think you can spot who ate all the pies !!!

Spugwash 2014 in review?

Well seen as WordPress have done all the work in reviewing my year I might as well publish it. If you’re mentioned Thank You and can someone from a new country visit so I can hit 50 visiting countries????

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,700 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 45 trips to carry that many people.

The Apple and the Crow

No it’s not a new track by Kirsty Tunstall !

I went for a windy walk on the canal this morning and popped my apple down while I took some photo’s of the cygnet which seems to be a permanent fixture now. Well down flew a cheeky crow and made off with my apple !!!! It then flew off into the trees and merrily tucked in.


When Thoughts Turn to Summer

As is the norm these days tomorrow has been given a name in the style of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Tomorrow is Sunshine Saturday when there is a huge surge of people going on-line to book their summer holidays. So with this in mind I thought I would just post a warning about the dangers of overdoing it in the sun.

Just remember to slip on a shirt, slap on a hat and slop on the sunscreen, you don’t want to end up like this 19 year old we met in Italy !!!!!!
