Good Evening, I can’t believe that this is my first entry this month don’t really know why have been a bit busy but not that busy. Have been reading a great deal working and sitting in the garden when the weather has been warm enough and trying to get fit for our holiday in three weeks time.
Stuart and I took a walk along the disused railway line yesterday morning and I took the pictures above nothing very grand but it gives you an idea of our surroundings.
We are trying to get walking again as we are off on holiday at the beginning of next month and we will need to be a bit fitter than we are after the winter. It has been so cold and wet and we have both been suffering with sore hips and I also have a bad knee at the moment we are hoping the warmer weather will help us. We do a lot of walking when we are bird watching so we will have to keep at it
In the huge tree at the bottom of our garden I think it’s a Sycamore about forty odd feet tall and very old has acquired a pair of crows. They have been sitting there since February and have been trying to build a nest for the past three weeks. We think they must be a inexperienced pair as they have been absolutely hopeless they have brought in stick after stick and laying them on the same branch of the tree and it they all fell through. At last on Thursday they managed to get a couple of sticks to sit and from then on they are getting on like a house of fire. You must be wondering how I can see the happening it because my kitchen window looks our onto the tree and I can see all what is happening up there and I have had a look with my binoculars too. I wish them well even if I will have to put up with all the caw-ing all summer.
This afternoon Stuart and I sat down while the rain and the hail was thumping down and watched a movie I had recorded a few weeks ago. It was a very old movie black and white but it was one I had not seen and Stuart wanted to see again. What was it ….Staring Gregory Peck in ‘ To Kill a Mockingbird. What a great movie it was it did not seem dated at all just a great story so well made and so well acted of course Gregory Peck never make a bad picture did he. They don’t make them like that any more.
Till next time
