Guess what I've got.........................

It was dull and dreary this morning and most of the afternoon. So, I didn't hurry. Showering, eating my breakfast, answering your the mail on the blog,  and there it was, in amongst email to look at, there was one. From BirdGuides..................Waxwings at Cinderford 9.15am. Well, I couldn't let it go, even when the weather was not very good. So, I jumped, well, sort of jumped, into my car and went high speed, at least 50 mph all the way there. And there it was, 8 of them, Waxwings................................. Sorry about the pictures, it was dull day.
 It is breakfast time

  4. Oh Bob! You and your dull days! :-)
    You know what? Those are the most wonderful dull day photos! Not every day in our life is sunny, and there is much beauty in dull days too! I am so happy you sort of jumped and went out - thank you for that! :-) Here is a hug for you!
