Afternoon all, have not been out much the last few days as the weather has not been co-operating at all it we have had heavy rain, heavy drizzle, and heavy sleet, strong cold winds you name it and we have had it with the exception of snow that has yet to come. We were out for our usual coffee this morning and a trip down the village to collect repeat prescriptions. Since we got back we have been watching the whale in the Thames, I hope they are successful. and wish all the volunteers well.
I have been reading of late that there is great concern about the Albatross, these poor bird have getting killed in the thousands yes thousands by fishing lines that are laid out over 8 miles the albatross get caught up in these lines. All the fisherman need to do is tie ribbons to them every so often and that will keep the birds away it is such a shame as they are such a beautiful birds. We do not get them in the northern hemisphere, but one that stays in the Shetland Islands and the birdwatchers flock to see it when he is spotted. Sorry did not mean to make this a wildlife lesson but as will gather I feel very strongly about this. Am going now as I want to nip down and see how the whale is doing. Bye for now Love.
