Still not in the pink of health by any means as I enter week two of 'bug'. Jane sent me home after the 8am service with orders not to return but to concentrate on getting better, Mandy had other ideas if I was at home the van and my car needed cleaning which was done after I'd completed the bird watch, I think we recorded about 18 species, no huge numbers but we did get Coal Tit, Long tailed tit and tree creeper which aren't always around plus the usual favourets although the woodpecks were a notable absence and even the long tailed tit a lone sample which is most unusual and the more often come as a flock. I see Jays around the Lower Peover lanes more often than in our garden but whenever i put down larger pieces of food such as fruit the Jays will probably turn up and they are colourful.
I did eventually get the Bus Spot Ultra Malta finished although it took until this evening, clips will go on our Youtube channel in the next few minutes.... paused for pudding, treacle steamed pudding, yummy. It's college tomorrow then it must be heading towards half term, the week after this I'm off to Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia for 10 days. I hope the weather there is better than that in Cheshire. The forecasts for this week are basically Tuesday light cloud I could film lots of places, Monday rain, Wed and Thursday we are in North Wales visiting relations cloud and sun will get something done if I can. Friday who knows, although the BBC have now started to give a % rain chance which is one helpful development. I got quite a few resources ready for Messy Church at Over Peover next Sunday, I have my course tomorrow and then I want to get some of the more recent church records disposed of as we need some space making. The first time we went to Malta was pre my video days mid to early 80's thus photos but no moving images the only gap in my new Bus Sport Ultra 120 minutes staring from the original coloured route buses. The green which was then used was one of the main area colours, others light blue, red, etc. Gozo didn't change until Arriva they were as below. I'm going to rest now while the Malta Youtube clips upload
