With all this busyness it's been hard keeping reports going on other activities, we had a Blackcap on the bird feeder on Sunday, a rare warbler visitor but we have a couple of sightings over the years. A bit of a bully to other small birds. Coming back from my course in Chester on Monday nights I saw on consecutive weeks a barn owl and hare both near home and rare sightings of note.We've made progress on both Mandy's and my own family trees with direct ancestors now mid 17thC for Mandy via her natural father and myself mid 16thC via my mother's side in Norfolk.

Amazon, well what do you expect, migration seems to be the big issue and no its not Geese, its postage, don't ask me I just use it, phoned India I suppose left it with them, came the old soldier routine. BT scraping the barrel now, the internet connection keeps vanishing and poor speeds, said they found a fault and it would be fixed by end of the day, I wonder. Photos from Cheltenham yesterday
