Anniversary Time

It is twelve years ago this week-end when I started this blog and there has been an entry every week since! Realistically it will be impossible to carry it on at that rate – the hills get higher and equipment seems heavier!! My fitness is not what it used to be and I have to accept the fact that I can no longer leave Rochdale and be stood on the top of Pendle Hill in 59 minutes – unless I get a faster car! So if a weekly blog does not appear you will understand why
In recent weeks birds have been returning to the garden to feed in good numbers. This weeks juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker has been several times. In addition we had a near record count of 42 House Sparrows plus 15 Blue Tits. The highest counts always coincide with wet weather which is difficult to explain why. Four Hedgehogs feeding one evening was just reward for all the food that we have put out. Click here
