Should've known the minute I was looking forward to a few days off I'd be hit by a double whammy, rubbish weather and DIY around the house.
Now I've not had a proper cigarette for two months and "Vaping" instead being my sole nicotine joy the house needed a lick of paint, the better half wanted a new basin and new taps in the bathroom. I did of course sneak out in between visits to the DIY store.
First outing found me lurking around the Billing pub, not much on the marina apart from gulls...hardly any geese or swans which was odd. Saw a Kingfisher couple of times but the only thing that presented itself was this Grey Wagtail
Sunday was spent doing my Goldfinch survey for the BTO. Still 31 birds eating nothing but sunflower hearts, I have never had so many Goldfinch on the garden. The tame female Chaffinch is still in the garden
