    Jenny and Betty, I am still going strong and keeping chirpy, it is this week on Wednesday that I will be having the injection into my eye again, so looking forward to that. I have today been walking Abby around the local lakes so still trying to get out when I can. For me the spring is the best time to be wondering about in the forests for birds, summer is good for wild flower meadows and reptiles and autumn for fungi and migrating birds.
    What do you think of my brothers wild life photos, he will spend the whole weekend sitting in his hide waiting for the right shot and most weekends he does get some really good ones. A lot of his photos are caught on Dartmoor as he holidays down there, the stoat in the wall and the wild horses I know were taken down there.

    Elsie so glad that you had a lovely ride out, sounded great fun.
    Jan glad you had a lovely time in Wells, we all need some time out
    Will be sad for you and mrs farmer to see the Geese flying off. We have them all year here so sort of take them for granted.
    Has been cool weather since we had the air conditioner put in!!
    Mick hope you are well. Betty Canada.

    We had a lovely time in Wells, Jenny, the weather was hot and sunny, walked around Pensthorpe, springwatch was filmed there in 2008 was nice but not worth the £11.25 entrance fee !!

    I am sending this from a sunny Durham. Harold has gone to Durham City for the Durham Miners Gala which he loves. I don’t go as I find it too emotional and usually end up in tears. Jack took Harold and me for a lovely ride out last night, we went right along the coast from road Seaham Harbour to South Shields and back. This where they do the Great North Run, it starts at Newcastle and ends at South Shields. Really enjoyed having a taste of the sea air again.From where we live we are 74 miles to either coast, east and West. Whereas from here they are very near to the coast and only an hours ride to Whitby. Would have liked to have gone to Beamish Museum but not enough time. Have a good weekend all of you.

  • Jenny says:

    Mr Farmer are the Canada Geese and their brood still with you or have they flown the nest so to speak ? Also are the black swans still on the other lake?

    Can you please tell Mrs Farmer that her photos of the Jenny Wrens were brilliant, how lucky you are having them at your back door so to speak !

    I see from the webcams that you still have lovely sunny weather with you whilst we have rain, dark clouds and more rain expected over the weekend ! Today we should have had two men turning up at our house and our next door neighbours to erect two new fences for us but have not turned up yet obviously because of the bad weather so hopefully they will tomorrow ! I wouldn’t mind but the short sleeved tops are now away and we have returned to warmer clothes !!! it really is miserable ! Also it should have been our Grandson’s school sports day today which we were going to support but it was cancelled and is now on Monday and we can’t go to it as we are already doing something else !

    I did manage to see a deer at the badgers feeding station last night, two badgers and a few large rats !

    Elsie and Harold enjoy meeting up with your old friends over the weekend

    Betty hope hubby is feeling a bit less stressed and wish you luck on Monday and hope you get some positive answers !

    Karen have you had any cat naps yet ?

    Mick you are very quiet are you gong on some more trips out ????

    Finally Jan hope that you and hubby enjoyed Wells next the Sea and that the weather was kind to you both !

    Have a good weekend everyone

    Cool here too 21 degrees. That is because we had the air conditioning installed yesterday!! Am happy to have it done as it turned out to be a big job. They were here from 10am till 6pm. Have a lovely weekend everyone.

  • Jenny says:

    I see on the webcams at Denbury Farm that the sun is shining there, well here in Selsdon it has been chucking it down all morning and it is soooo cold as well !

  • Jenny says:

    Yes I think you are right Jan. Eagle Heights is about half an hours drive from us We sometimes take Sam our Grandson to see them all but in their cages !!!! Believe me he would run a mile if one landed near him and John and I can’t run that fast now !!!!

  • MrFarmer says:

    Mrs Farmer got this photo of the Jenny Wren fledglings when they returned to the nest this evening

  • jan(herts) says:

    Sorry correction to my last post, I think it was Harold the vulture :)

  • jan(herts) says:

    Jenny, we took the kids to Eagle Heights years ago, the eagles were big, but Henry the vulture stole the show for us, he was a fantastic sight to watch :)

  • MrFarmer says:

    Photo on the Gallery of a newly fledged Jenny Wren waiting for a feed. They nested above our kitchen door. There are two chicks, the other not wanting to face the world yet.

  • Jenny says:

    Yes Mick you should certainly get out and about more providing your other half doesn’t mind playing chaeuffer (however you spell it) to you ! It will definitely do you some good ! Not far from where we live we have a place called Eagle Heights which has all sorts of birds of prey and they have a seating and viewing area where they let them fly off into the sky and then the birds come back and land next to you, well the first time we went i had a huge bald eagle land right next to me – oh what a shock I had as they are huge !

  • Mick says:

    Jenny and Betty, Thanks for that and yes my other half did drive also when we got near to Salisbury, I said last time we were here there was a Buzzard perched on that tree then that is when I spotted the two Buzzards in flight circling the tree. My wife did spot the Red Kite though in fact we thought that we might go down to Andover to the Hawk Conservancy to see the birds of prey.
    Mick

  • Jenny says:

    So good to hear that you went out Mick and you enjoyed yourself – you must do it more often !!!!! Presume your other half was driving or should I say better half ???? Seeing buzzards and a red kite, that definitely proves you must go out more !

    Betty I have already responded to you on FB ! Wow the 70th Afternoon Tea birthday celebrations was lovely and we were actually able to stay outside in the garden apart from a few spots of rain – typical English summer !

    My tooth has started playing up again and unfortunately have to have the four tooth bridge removed which sadly my Dentist will not do as because of the medication I am on there could be problems with bleeding so he has written to Guy’s Hospital to see if they can help ! and am on more penicillin yet again !

    Expecting another addition to the family our daughter rang last night to tell us the good news !!!! they have bought a Labradoodle puppy (apricot colour) and calling her Mabel ! She is only 5 weeks old so they are collecting her at the end of August ! Poor Daisy their cat will wonder what has hit her when she arrives ! Andrea & Kate are both asthmatic and the Labradoodle’s do not molt – yeh we will wait and see ! Kate is taking a month off work to settle her in and then they have someone who will train and look after her when they are at work !

    Not much going on with the webcams this morning, all looking very quiet ! and it will be even more so when the Canada Geese leave the lake !

    Elsie hope that you and Harold enjoyed the wedding last weekend ?

    Karen how are you doing weaning off your medication, had any sleep yet ????

    Have a good day everyone !

    The Goslings took their first flight this evening. Well 3 of them did. They made to the small Lake with the Goose and Gander but the small Lake is to small for them to get enough flight to get air born and needed to be shown back to the main Lake.

  • betty canada says:

    Sound like a lovely day out Mick. I am so happy for you.

  • Mick says:

    Just popped down to the New Forest today and also stopped at the reptile centre and managed to see most of our snakes and lizards but not the slow worm or frogs and toads. Took some photos of fallow deer from a stand at the top of the field. Took the long scenic way through Salisbury along miles of straight Roman roads. Also saw two Buzzards together just outside Salisbury and a Red Kite near home on the edge of a village called Hartley Witney. First time I have been out for a day out for a couple of years so really enjoyed it.

  • betty canada says:

    Thank you Karen for your funny story and for the kind thoughts. My appointment was mixed news today. The gynecologist said he doesn’t think it is cancer but he cannot be sure as the ultrasound and the MRI gave some conflicting results and when he examined me he said the left ovary was more enlarged than he expected and it was painful.. He would normally do the surgery but because of all my other symptoms he thinks it will make them worse. He was very sweet and thorough and he referring me to a gynecologist/oncologist at The Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto as it is our best cancer hospital. I did the tumor marker 125 test today also. They have sent the referral off today so now a wait and see for this appointment.
    Karen I was thinking of you the other night as I had one of the night where I didn’t sleep at all and the next night slept 2.30am -6am and then was wide awake. I did however sleep normally last night.
    I really wish they will fund this medication for you so that you can feel better. Hopefully you will hear soon.
    Jenny enjoy your tea party and hopefully the weather forecast will change. Sound like the fete was a lot of un I am jealous.
    I spoke to my sister again today as the Dr I saw said it was very unlikely she had ovarian cancer as she would not be here 10 years later as the survival rate is 15% at 3 years. Today she said it was a tumor (which means that it was very likely benign but she did have endometrial cancer Grade 1). Which is much better news. Elsie glad that Harold is coming along and that the pacemaker is doing it’s job and Mick hope you are OK.
