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.

Sunday, 23.4.2017

Went to Reddish Vale again this Sunday, nice sunny day and plenty of wildlife about.

Moorhen on the nest, though there was a baby walking about so that's about 3 weeks old, so not sure if it's a different Mother or the same with another brood on the way!.


Baby Moorhen about 3 weeks old.

They even climb trees.

Look at the size of that egg, its abandoned by the swans.

They seem to have moved into the trees at the side of the lake and the path has been fenced off to give them some privacy. 

Looks a real love nest hey!.

Round the park there was plenty of other birds 

A Dunnock.

A chaffinch.


Then on the small lake spotted these baby Coots!.

Get this down your neck

Dad's helping out too.


Meanwhile back home, did a bit more on the boat, ie masking and spraying again.

Made a use of some of the loads of pamphlets than get pushed though our doors daily!

Sprayed the Green


Then,with the masking removed, shows the nice Red contrast, bright but Canal boats are aren't they!.

Son John has made a track cleaner for his garden railway and he has just painted his model Green!, 

Mate Bob's boat, Green as well, this is his lettering just done and sent by email.

Great minds think alike hey!.
