The blog is 7 years old today, so I thought I'd better do something.
A bird I constantly struggle to get a half decent picture of, is a Kingfisher.
The year started with this one, a posing female, till she noticed me. I'll keep trying.
We had our first snow of the year a couple of days ago, all gone now though. Whisky found it rather interesting, his first time of seeing it. He wasn't keen on a couple of snowmen we came across though.
A short video clip in the snow
Finally, we had a trip out to Frampton Marsh with Trevor a few days ago. The actual reserve is a no go area for dogs, (a shame, because not all dogs are unruly; most are better behaved than some of the bloody kids I've seen on reserves), but we had an invigorating walk along the sea wall, and then down to Witham End.
From here we managed some distant views of a Slavonian Grebe
Not the best picture, but it was a long way out to sea.
A bit nearer were a couple of Grey Plover.
and finally a very dodgy picture of a Bar-tailed Godwit.
That's it. I'm off to blow out the candles on the cake. Have a good one whatever you are doing.
