Two Days in May

The intention was that there was to be 
NO POST
today, in fact we were on the very cusp of knocking the Blog
on the head altogether! Time and Readership are the 2 main issues
with so many other things we would like to get stuck into, and with daily totals
now hovering perilously close to the 'cut off' double figures. Fact is we not only
want to continue publication, as a priority, but also need the Ego Trip if you like.
Again we ask you all to put pen to paper and simply E-Mail 'all addressees' (one click)
with the simple message "Google The Bagsy Blog and become a Daily Reader!
THANK YOU IN ANTICIPATION

Janet's string of thoroughbreds are now hosting Robin, House Sparrow, 
Collared Dove and likely Great Tit in the stable while
 a minor but welcome interuption from the traps at 05:15 as Hugh's
text had me scampering (well use your imagination) to Parley Pond
 where the largest concentration of
TUFTED DUCK
had arrived.
 OK, we ain't talking Red-billed Quelea here but c5 does represent the highest
video
 total ever seen here all together but never all 5 'in shot'!
 GREEN ALKANET
while the resident
RED-EARED TERRAPIN
also took to the bank for the first time this year for a spot of sun.
Otherwise, the last couple of days have just been a mish-mash of this and that.

Ruby Tiger Moth,
 the lairs of
FUNNEL SPIDER

 and we still haven't quite made our minds up if this is a juvenile
STONECHAT
or not, possibly a pale/washed-out female?

  1. Well, l for one will miss the Blog if you decide
    to end it all...that does'nt sound right Willie! :).
    But, doing it on a daily basis is difficult of course,
    l've been nagged and nagged, since mine was done, back
    in 2008...but the idea was, just a one off post, that
    was that, though last weekend, l turned to, added a few
    more photos, and generally tidied it up! Looks good! :).
    If l started posting...God! I'd be at it M/N/Night....
    So doing and posting on a daily basis, involves a lot
    of work, perhaps a weekly post may be better for you Capt!
    But, then the decision is yours of course! If your not
    getting the feed back...!
    What ever you decide must be respected of course...!
    Good luck! :).
