Ever been walking along & seen someone approaching who you don’t want to meet? You dodge into a shop or even about face and do the buggerin’ off, don’t you? Well, ever noticed someone seeing you and doing the same? Weird isn’t it?
Just heard “… my cholesterol was high …” in a TV ad as “Michael Aspel was high”* – it took me a couple of head shakes to realise what I’d heard.
Anyhow; on with the motley:MMW 4.27 & MMW 2.67

Cat the hunter
(I know what “motley” is but I like the expression)
Up to the docs to book prescriptions
There’s one or two cats that hang around the pond – don’t know if they ever get anything. (although here’s one of mine I took a few years ago)
Sparrows,robins, bullfinches, grebe on t’ nest, blackbird splashing in a puddle, a magpie doin’ the buggerin’ off. The blackbird after the apples was below Castle Hill, and back to t’ grebe on t’pond.
On with the motley: reminds me of “Eeeeeh! I’n’t it grand when you’re daft?!” (Albert Modley).
Up to docs/chemists to collect prescriptions. MMW 3.91
Bluetit doin’ the buggerin’ off
Bluetit with wings spread: excellent! Bullfinches galore and sparrows in a sparrow tree.
MMW 3.82 MMW 1.75
Haws in the rain
Squirl doin’ the buggerin’ off.
Shoppery on a view
Robins on a real chirruping session, sparrows fluffing up in the cold, a goosander taking off, a long tailed tit being cute, grebes nest building. My shadow on the bywash at Stret lock. The seagull is perfectly reflected while standing on the submerged lump of carpet on the pond. Burdock plants are favourites with bullfinches. The squirrel left only its tail for photography and tufted ducks are CUTE!
Sky, church, tree
Liked the grass hanging in a circle and the two pics amalgamated to form a heart shape as the Narrowboat came and went. Sundry fungi: tiny mushrooms; Morse Lock’s bottom gate has fungi growing on it; there’s tiny bracket fungi growing in moss with growth rings of multi colours and the Jew’s or Judas’ ear is on the elders near the Priory shopping centre. The Sparrow tree is back on the pond.
