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

On the spur of the moment!

Today was meant to be homework in the morning. But.. the sun was shining... But I wanted to purchase a binocular harness at the shop (they didn't have any in stock!) ... but.. but...

So I asked J (grandson) if he would like a trip to Barnes and then homework in the afternoon and he readily agreed, so off we went.

J was in his element and looked like a proper birder with my spare binocs (which he put to good use) slung around his neck.

Met Pete there who had already seen the Water Vole - the WWT had put some carrots out for him (the Water Vole that is - not Pete; conjures up image of said Pete perched on a small raft amongst the reeds, nibbling sliced carrots - hmmm!). Unfortunately for me I didn't get a picture worth keeping as a phone call distracted me - which was a tad irritating. It was then too close for the camera to focus - must look into that! Really irritating!

However, it was an enjoyable unplanned morning in Spring-like weather. And J declared it a great success.

Some pics of birdies - some are collection birds, one very hairy bird, and one mystery bird having taken up residence in a nest box; but they were all posing so nicely....
