    Ready for take-off

    The houses which front onto the canal on the opposite side to the towpath have private boat mooring privileges. This one has a series of breeze block ledges and is covered with a variety of old road (mostly) signs. There was a ledge just above this Eurasian Blackbird and rather than 'fly up'...

    A blob on a wire

    When I see a blob on a wire I have to take the picture of it. Sometimes it remains a blob but this time it was a House Sparrow. Lunch in the churchyard was beginning to be productive. After I posted yesterday's picture, the young Starlings came back in their usual mob. They are now sporting...

    Grey Wagtail

    Another distant little bird in the middle of a river. Well it's actually the same river (the Usk) but a few miles upstream at a great birdwatching place called Llanvihangel Gobion. I've been there before, but this time accessed from a different place (the little village of The Bryn if anyone's...
