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 →

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 …
Snowdrops and daffs
Path of snowdrops
Billy goat gruff
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 →
