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.

Weekend out and about,8th & 9th April 2017.

Saturday we were at Etherow Country Park!.

Young swan without a mate


These were the only Mandarins about, think the others were on the top lake breeding.

One of last years baby Muscovy ducks.

Out in the middle of the big lake this Great Crested Grebe was relaxing after a hard days breeding!.

Can't we keep walking instead of keep stopping to photograph everything in sight?.

It is quite hot today though.


Sunday we were at Reddish Vale!.

The Moorhens with their babies were doing well

Both going well.

Both swimming as well.

Dad scavenging for the larder. 

Just over a week old and already preening and washing themselves.

No sign of babies with the nesting Grebes here.

Big daddy!.

The swans at the Vale are nesting well


Nice Dove!.

Nice weekend with dinner at Son, John's

A bit of work being done on the banking of the railway, have to work at the weekend so as to not to disrupt the passenger trains on Monday morning.
