Our day

Well, whilst slipping into our long johns for the afternoon freeze with Mr Stiths & Co we had a call from the RSPCA to collect a cat for my sister - bar hum bug :-( and to top it all we forgot some paperwork and had to do the trip twice! By the time we had finished (ending at Par at 2.15pm) we decided to have a look at Par Duck Pool! It was just as cold as Stithians and without the shelter of the hide and good company ;-) We stayed for an hour and had: 4 Grey Herons, 3 Cormorant, Blackbirds, about 10 Pied Wagtails (maybe more but they move so fast), 4 Stonechat, Mallards, Swans, Canada Geese, BH Gulls, H Gulls, Coots, Moorhens, (all too many of each to count), Buzzard, and probably more Gulls, but we are not experienced enough to ID them. I obviously took the BEST photo (Cormorants) so try better next time Trevor (Specsavers). Thanks for setting up the camera though!

The dog is eating more fish than I can afford (but at least she's improving) and its work tomorrow :-(((

We WILL get to Stithians next week (I will blast anyone who gets in my way with the supa dupa pump action water gun I keep on the back doorstep!!!!)

Just as it was getting dark the Firecrest popped into the garden for his last feed! Happy days.


  1. You would not believe how cold Stithians was today ! ! ! !

  2. I can guess.My fingers were frozen fiddling about with the controls on the compact today.
