Shot of the Day
As I was expecting Fred & Irene at lunch time my morning was spent mowing the back lawn and a bit of general housekeeping. The purpose of their visit was to see my nestcam set up and a visit to the Moorland Feeder Station as they take a very keen interest in what I'm up to. After lunch and a good chat we headed for the feeder station. When we got there, there was plenty of action but a bitterly cold wind which made Irene seek the warmth of their car. Fred and I spent some time behind the hide enjoying a good variety of birds, he was particularly impressed by the size of the Great Tits. After a while they said they had to return home but had thoroughly enjoyed their visit. As the wind had dropped slightly I remained for a while hoping to get a shot or two.
I received a text in the morning from my work colleague Lene saying she was going to be walking her dog at Longtown at 3pm if I would like to join her. This was the same walk as I went on with Mr & Mrs Tootlepedal recently. By the time I got to Longtown the sun was out and it was comfortably warm so it was nice to enjoy walking in comfort.
