07/04/2016 A trip to the bike shop and a bird with a mission.

Maximum temperature 11C, minimum 3C.    29 km/h  NW  winds.  Rain not measured as yet.
The trip was planned early to miss the rain...

Nigel taking his bike in for a gear change problem - camera has the colour wrong it is bright red!!!

This was outside the shop...

I cannot imagine cycling with these tyres!

The forecast got it wrong!  Collecting the bike back one hour later and looking at the rain over Angouleme....

Driving home.

The rain cleared at home before returning later...

and I caught this Wood pigeon on a mission...

left, right, left.......

ah nice fresh water just been filled up....

that feels better....

on my way....

bye bye.

    1. So long as it stays in our garden it will be fine. Hunting time it could well be in danger of ending up in a pigeon pie here in France! Diane

  4. That pigeon looks like it buried its head in the water. I don't see riding a bike anywhere.

    1. I had a horse that used to drink like that, he would put his head in a bucket right up to his eyes!!!!! I have gone off cycling since I had the bad fall in Spain which is why I am walking more!!!!!! Hope you have a good weekend Diane
