Just a bit about something other than railway stuff, for a change!
Out with ‘Hopalong Ellie’ (still nowhere near 100% yet, but enjoying her walks) this morning by Gaskin’s Wood when I heard a fluttering behind me and there was what I took to be a fledgling Blue Tit. It was fluttering about quite happily but couldn’t manage more than half-a-dozen flaps and about three feet in height! It just makes you think what would happen to it if some idiot came along and started a fire, which they are doing quite a lot of at the moment in the area.
Another bit of life on the Hills for a couple of days – someone had put a couple of carp in one of the pools. I’m not sure of the names but I think the heron calls them ‘breakfast’!! Fortunately some teenagers with a pond at home went to get a bucket to save the fish and the heron went hungry!
