Cleaning up

We had a day on the farm cleaning up today, which was rather sad.

It was a cold and blustery day – you can tell it was blustery from the angle of the feeder in the picture, but you’ll have to take my word for the temperature. 213 more words

New Year, old legs

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He took this atmospheric picture of Sheffield at dusk a few days ago.

After our very bright and sunny start to 2107, our weather reverted to its more normal style of the last few weeks for today, quite warm but very grey.  517 more words

These are probably the last bird pictures of 2015. We have had three good days in the last week, lots of pictures still to sort through … this is a small selection of the birds we have seen this week. 23 more words


Very slow progress

Today’s guest picture comes from a visit my brother paid to Cleethorpes,  a seaside resort.  It was rather too cold for fun on the beach so he headed out into the coastal region of North East Lincolnshire, just south of the town. 645 more words


Back to normal with a pedal and a tootle

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Dropscone.  He was not to be outdone by his sister so he sent me a bridge picture too from a recent walk to Arrisgill.  560 more words


Hands across the sea

Today’s guest picture is the ZurichSee, taken this morning.  It was sent me from Zurich by Hilary, Dropscone’s niece, my Zurich correspondent.

The weather in Langholm could hardly have been more different as it was an absolutely foul day, temperature in low single figures, intermittent heavy showers and a cruel and ruthless wind making life far less than joyful. 589 more words
