Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

Back at Etherow!.

Back at Etherow!.

It was back to Etherow today and you could certainly tell the children were off school as the roads were almost deserted!, makes a heck of a different doesn't it!.

There were a couple of Great Crested Grebe's back on the big lake,


Then Pepe spotted something!,

Look at those two toads playing piggyback Dad!
Hmm, Yes Pepe, he's too young to realise!.


On the big lake there was this family of Coots, Father showing the first born the ropes.

This is how you furnish your mate with material to keep the nest together Son!. 

What an idiot!, its too big!!,

"I was only demonstrating to our Friday you nasty old witch, you're are always like this when you are broody"!

They've called him Friday because Dad took one look at him and said 'I think we'll call it a day'!.

Put some bread out to attract any birds and saw this Crow struggle to get the lot into his beak!.

On the opposite bank there was this family of mandarins, good camouflage hey!.  

If you have seen the earlier posts you can see that all seven of the babies are still doing well

Mum doing a good job!


'Is that our Dad Mum?', 'Yes he was such a charmer when he was courting me, mind you he has been knocking himself out keeping me well feed'!.

What side of the chicken has most feathers?.
The outside!.

What's a polygon.
A dead parrot!.

Why do Owls avoid making love in a storm.
Because its too wet to woo!.
.......................................................................
That's it for today folks.
