Mandarin Duck (male) at the Forest of Dean

I'm going on holiday tomorrow, whoopee, with my brother, Pete. It will be the first holiday that I have taken for 15 whole years. Where am I going to, well, that's my secret, I will tell you when I come back, but it is a beautiful spot.
Now, when I come back, I will start by only put the things that I think are worthy, so you don't expect me every night.
15 year ago, I had a hemorrhagic stroke, cerebrovascular accident (CVA). It has made me hard to understand, especially reading or writing, it doesn't make sense. I am trying. It also left me without a right arm and right leg and all the digits. Anyway, I am tremendously happy.
Holiday at last!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Holly Blue is one of finest, little and it is hard to find. Camouflage, that's what I call it.

Tufted Duck (male) in Harbour Road, Lydney.

I was lucky today, because the owner of the clean water in the gravel pits, he had left the gate unlocked. So, I began to take advantage of it, and why not, it should have been for everyone. Shhhhh, don't tell him!!!!!!!!!!!

Swallows (Harbour Road, Lydney)

I had about an hour to pick a good spot, where I should be lucky. It was Harbour Road; I knew what I'd find. Swallows.

And, there were more...........................

Mistle Thrush (Forest of Dean)

It was another grey sky, so not to bother myself, I jumped in my secret box = archives.
The Mistle Thrush fits in the undergrowth, its hard to see them most of the time.
