Bird watching in Humshaugh
The weather today has been beautiful. I enjoyed it mainly from inside the house as I recovered from yesterday's long walk! I did walk to the Post Office van for stamps but arrived as he drove off! Tomorrow.
I met Tina, who we call the "bat lady"* walking with her lovely elderly dog, Kim. Tina and her partner, Steve are very keen birdwatchers, but I don't know if they have seen this exotic species. It was roosting in a flowering currant beside the village hall. I note that the currant has also managed to make berries; how bizarre!
A redstart has been seen in the village and I thought I saw one when I was walking the other day. I must take my binoculars with me.
This morning I managed to watch Line of Duty, episode 6. Wow again. I feel as though I need to go back and watch from the beginning of series 1. I'm not sure I can stand the tension as we head to the final denouement.
Mum and I watched Call the Midwife. It does manage to tackle some tricky subjects.
I may need an early night to prepare for my outing tomorrow, despite sleeping this afternoon. (It was bliss.)
