... and to end the year ...

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


The best laid plans...

Today’s guest picture from my Newcastle correspondent shows a splendid drum kit to be found on a new trail at Plessey Woods Country Park.

We had an exciting plan A for today and a fairly exciting fallback plan B too.  946 more words


April showers (with a vengeance)

Today’s guest picture shows that not only do they have a lot of tax-dodging rich men in London, they have beautiful blossom too.  My sister Mary passed this example on her way to tennis recently. 542 more words


A slow day

Today’s guest picture, in response to yesterday’s, comes from my South African correspondent Tom and shows that anyone and his niece can be found on the top of Blencathra in the mist.  484 more words
