Lørdag Første Oktober 2016

Google translate tells me that that’s Saturday first October in Danish.
As usual for the weekend, a Mollyless walk

The two planes are both Flybe heading for Doncaster. They were almost exactly an hour apart. Note: the later one’s propeller powered – not very common for so large a passenger craft(?).
Convolvulus flowers are pretty beautiful – pity it’s a weed. Continue reading

Blackthorn is really beginning to bloom everywhere now.
Think there are four grebes(great crested obviously) on the pond but there might be more. They move so quickly underwater that, unless you see two at the same time, you can’t really tell.
This was a Molly Walking day and quite warm. She enjoys paddling to have a drink without having to bend down.
Here’s three grebes at once. If I recall correctly, I did catch sight of four at once but not on camera. Continue reading

A Week of Wazzocking

Monday the Seventh of March Twenty Sixteen


Another of those panorama shots of the pond. Getting fed up with ’em yet? Tough!
Starlings are really underrated, they’re beautiful birds.
Think this is a pair of great crested grebes. (As opposed to just two hanging about together) Continue reading

March begins

Here ’tis – with some Extra Mature Cheddar on half a Tuc biccie. I usually pig out on Stilton but my local M&S food recently had a fridge breakdown and (horrors!) chucked a load of cheese away.

Walked to Turnerwood and back the pretty waymap link – about 13Km – nearly 8 miles – including shopping at the end. Might have overdone it a tad – hip ached by the time I got home. There’s links to the pics on the map.
For reasons best known to my subconscious I’ve got these pics in exactly the wrong order – last to first. Can’t be arsed to change it now so …

There’s a footpath posted from the Sports and Social club that is covered with snowdrops … and goats … on its way to Shireoaks Road. I’ve been so far along it several times but never had the nerve to enter the goats’ paddock; I assume they’re friendly but just look at those horns. The snowdrops are rather nice bloody beautifulStop pussyfooting around, Roj. Say it like it is.. Continue reading
