A little step further

Today’s guest picture is a Harris hawk which my brother noticed while on a trip the other day.  From the trailing cord on its legs, it looks like a falconer’s bird.  I might well have been walking rapidly in the other direction rather than taking photos as it looks quite alarming to me. The mistContinue reading “A little step further”

A foggy day in Langholm town

Today’s guest picture comes from my daughter and shows one of the dull sorts of birds that come to a feeder in the middle of a big city. The temperature here stayed just about zero all day and I was banned from any adventurous walking for fear of icy patches.  Mrs Tootlepedal and I didContinue reading “A foggy day in Langholm town”

After yesterday’s glut of eating and walking, Mrs Tootlepedal and I took things more easily todayContinue reading “Boxing clever”

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Bruce, who found a nice to day celebrate Christmas on the Isle of Arran.

Discharged

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia and shows a curiously mauve sunset in Devon yesterday. We didn’t have any sunset here yesterday to notice and nor did we have a sunrise today as our spell of miserable weather continues.  It rained pretty well all day and as a result I only went for one walk,Continue reading “Discharged”
