Due to the dataminers being a little bit less active this month due to the cold weather, I've been concentrating on putting church magazines on to the Archive Website. I phoned Tootlepedal to see if I could pop down and pick up some more magazines and he said I could and there would be coffee and treacle scones waiting for me courtesy of Dropscone. I didn't stay too long and left them to continue with their conversation, it was also good to see Tootle pedal is recovering well from his latest injuries. Before I left we arranged to go for a stroll in the afternoon.
Tootlepedal picked me up at the arranged time then we headed up to the bird feeders to see if there was much action, but there wasn't.
Bird on the Wire
Chaffinch looking hungerly at one of the feeders.
After a brief twenty minutes we decided to go and view the snowdrops at Holmhead. We stopped off at the Kilngreen as Tootlepedal wanted to try and get a shot of a flying seagull.....
........but most of them were perched on a fence post each enjoying the sunshine.
Mr drake admiring his reflection .
Tried to capture the crop of cones on the higher branches but doesn't quite work
The light on the trees along the Lodge Walks was quite striking.
A change from a flying bird.
Good to see estate workers planting new hardwood trees.
An attractive section of wall
I just loved the silhouette of the holy leaves on the trunk.
Getting prepared to regenerate.
Through the tunnel
A feeble attempt at macro.
This seriously needs addressed.
It's been a day for sunlit trees
A burning bush
Onward and downward.
We returned to the car and Tootlepedal kindly took me home.
