Carey Park Ramble

 This mornings wander round Carey Park. A bit muddy after all the rain. Flocks of midges anticipating the sun coming out. A crow in a tree. Catkins. Blossom in the hedgerows. Percy Edwards hiding somewhere doing all the bird noises. 24th March 2021.

Lostock Walk

 Actually two walks - one on Saturday over at Anderton where the photo of me was take with a wooden reindeer we found in the woods.  Yesterdays walk was over in Lostock after we dropped off Hazel's Mom's chicken and other groceries as we do every Sunday morning.  A quicj walk to the brine pumps and the hissy pipes .  This is what passes for entertainment in these days of lockdown!

River Dane Walk

 Nice walk this morning down to the River Dane and the fishing ponds.  Spotted what we thought was an exotic bird perched on a branch over hanging the river. As we got closer we realised it wasn't an owl but a plastic bag that had got entangled in the braches during the recent flooding!  Oh how we larfed!

Mothering Sunday

 Mothers Day and a walk to the Co-op for the "chicken run" to get a chicken for Hazel's Mom and sister plus a few other bits.  I walked round the park until Hazel emerged laden down with four bags of stuff to carry home.  Later we went over to Lostock to show G&A the lithophane that Archie made on his 3-D printer for Hazel - an old snap of us from the 90's. Had a quick chat and afterwards a walk to the by-pass passed a few daffs emerging.  Brrrrr! It was pretty windy and cold!   Good to get home in the warm.  Archie zoomed later for a chat.

Marbury Country Park

 Nice walk around Marbury this morning.  Joined the twitchers in the bird hide and amused by the dangling squirrel.  Lots of blue tits and finches, ducks and moorhens. I think I saw a mouse scurrying through the undergrowth - might have been a small bird.  It was cold and grey.  Car park was full but luckliy we found a space in the road by the Garden Centre.  Hazel bought a few plants for Mothering Sunday (next week )  and some potting compost.

River Dane and Fishing Ponds


This mornings walk to the River Dane and the fishing ponds. A bit grey and nippy but nice to get out and stretch our legs.  Very quiet - no one fishing or dog walking except in the roadways - just the chirping of birds and quacking of ducks and moorhen.  Nice to have the place to ourselves.
