New Record

Lunch time today - WHIE or Venice as it should be known at the moment!  Dog Walk Patch Count passed 16 and is now 17 thanks to a GSW.  Plenty of Fieldfare about, LT Tits too.  Now for all walks this week in the dark (6.30 am and 6.30 pm) and next weekend in Liverpool so no posts for a wee while (unless I see something in The Pool and can get on the kids' laptops to report back!).

Just thought, '... get on the kids' laptops..' makes me sound like Gary Glitter!!!!

Leader, Leader, Leader...........................

Super Sixteen

Yesterday's Dog Walk Patch Count was a dozen, today's four better.  In an hour from home towards Manor Walks and back across the fields, the usual Corvids, Gulls, Doves/Pigeons etc, but for me, the highlight was a pair of Sparrowhawks (never seen Mr and Mrs together and close) at the back of Westwood Grange (bottom of Nelson Hill).  Don't know whether she was chasing him or he was just a bit quicker seeing me coming but off they flew in convoy.  Su-feckin-perb!
