Ungarden birds

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He is quite unhappy that his work as a painter and decorator has been unceremoniously stopped by government order but no provision for helping the self employed to pay their bills has yet been put in hand by the authorities who are happy to pay the wageContinue reading “Ungarden birds”

Not a scone to be seen

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce’s recent trip to the central belt of Scotland.  He found a bit of a wall there that wasn’t built by Hadrian. There was torrential rain to the south of us today, leading to serious flooding in England but it was warm and dry here when I got up.  ThereContinue reading “Not a scone to be seen”

Right bird, right camera(s)

Today’s guest picture is another from the seaside outside our son Tony’s new house on the north shore of the Forth.  As well as seal spotting, he has been curlew catching. We had very little encouragement to do anything outside here today as it rained on and off the the whole time in a veryContinue reading “Right bird, right camera(s)”

A day in the country

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She went down to the Thames a week or so ago to catch a boat and spent so much time taking its picture that she almost missed it. We had another warm, grey, damp morning today but it wasn’t raining and I was able to take a lookContinue reading “A day in the country”

A garden visitor

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by her mother Clare, shows Matilda having fun in the Botanic gardens in Edinburgh this morning. We were promised a wonderful day of sunshine here today but when I set off to fill the Moorland bird feeders after breakfast, the hills were covered with clouds.  By the time that IContinue reading “A garden visitor”

No miles but a full day

I found today’s guest picture while looking at last month’s files.  It shows two pelicans which my sister Mary met in St James’ Park in April and it should have appeared before now. She describes the pelicans as “resting from their ‘amusing the tourists’ activities.” After the slightly cool air yesterday, today was back toContinue reading “No miles but a full day”

Wound down

Today’s guest picture was sent by Gavin, who was on holiday in the north when he took it.  It shows part of the Ring of Brodgar, a Neolithic henge and stone circle about 6 miles north-east of Stromness on the Mainland, the largest island in Orkney. Our spell of dry and windy weather continued today andContinue reading “Wound down”

Seen and gone

Today’s guest picture shows a fine waterfall visited by Dropscone and family on his Skye holiday. In spite of a forecast of rain, we had yet another dry, cool day with a brisk wind until the evening.  I should have gone cycling (my neighbour Ken did 40 miles in the morning) but I was feelingContinue reading “Seen and gone”

A lot to see but most of it quite far away

Today’s guest picture comes from Gavin in America.  He says that he has never been so close to a deer before. Our spell of dry and windy weather continued today, with the wind even stronger than yesterday so that it felt decidedly chilly when the sun wasn’t out. I started the day off with aContinue reading “A lot to see but most of it quite far away”
