My blog is mostly about wildlife, particularly birds, walking, days out, all growing things and anything else that comes to mind.

An odd day.. but rewarded at Warnham LNR..

There are times when time doesn't feel 'real'.. today was one of those times.

Had a medical appointment this morning, then needed to give a lift to a friend over a reasonably distance.. original chauffeur had been taken ill.. and finally managed about 1/2 hour at Warnham LNR on my way home.

The usual culprits but good to see Redpoll, Siskin, Redpoll and Wren..

not the best of pics today..

Sovereign Harbour.. a very short walk!!

I was in Sovereign Harbour today; principally to meet a friend but also to discover the 1st winter Black Guillemot.

The sun was glorious but the wind strong and bitingly cold!!  I saw the Guillemot through the binoculars.. it dived... and by the time I got nearer .. had disappeared. and I didn't rediscover it ... so o pic.. was really glad to have seen it though.

Birds were mostly Cormorants today...








We wandered back to one of the many cafe for hot coffee and lunch!!..

Good to get the bird  😃

RHS Wisley... flutters in the rain

Met a friend at Wisley today.. it was blowing a gale and torrential rain.

We headed off for the Glasshouse for some butterflies.

Needless to say the light was awful, but nonetheless..


















Hmmmm .. he didn't dare blink :D ..










and flutters never pose with the best of backgrounds..












in the glasshouse a robin was singing and giving it all..




We had a sandwich and a cuppa and a long chat over lunch..

Some lovely sculptures.. just wish the light has been better to do them justice..





















Even the Mallards looked fed up with the weather..
