Friday Morning

Starters:
Had to buy a new memory card, (looking at the dead one, it seems to have got wet somehow) I’d got a couple of 2 Gig ones,but they’re slow and not really big enuff for my snapping habit.

Had to buy a new microwave: another £40!

Rain! Wednesday it rained; only showers but such torrents when they came:

Couldn’t resist this:

Gingernuts and Gingerkit kipping together. They’ve both allowed me to feed and house them but I’ve no idea where they’re from. Since Gingerkit turned up Gingernuts has become quite affectionate: he’s on my lap at the moment.


A few favourites to end:

He looks as if he’s describing the one that got away.


Mother and younger child only.


This moorhen seems to be suspended.
