08/03/2018 A few photos I missed last month, and what I am sure was a siskin in the garden today
Maximum temperature today 15C, minimum 2C. 3 mm of rain measured this morning and we have had dry blue skies today; 11 km/h South Westerly winds with up to 39 km/h gusts. (319 mm of rain so far from the 1st of January).
Eurasian blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus).
A rare sighting in our garden of what I believe is a Eurasian siskin female (Spinus spinus). It was quite far away as all of today's birds were.
Common wood pigeon (Columba palumbus).
Great tit (Parus major).
One lone camellia in flower.
At the end of last month we went to Gourville and somehow I never loaded the photos on the blog!!
The station is now closed there, but they have the memories...
The mural at the end of the building....
A flat bed wagon on the old tracks.
Cafe de la Gare; we had a meat pie and veg here for lunch and it was very good. Just as we were leaving, the owner told us she had the keys for the little museum if we were interested. A bit late then as we wanted to get home, but maybe if we head that way again
Driving home from Gourville.
