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 6.7.8.May.17.

This weekend saw us at Reddish Vale on Sunday and was pleased to see that the Male Swan that was attacked by a dog (that three idiots had made happen) was doing well and looked alright!.
But as the lady in the Stockport Recorder said it's faith in humans had disappeared and will attack anyone going near now.

Flowers in bloom at the lake, don't ask me what they are, not a clue unless I buy them from the garden centre with the name attached!.
All very nice and colourful though aren't they.



It was a nice surprise to see that the Great Crested Grebes has another baby and they were all in the middle of the lake, just out of range of the camera as usual!. 




Going it on his own.

Dad doing his bit with the food supply


Heron on the small lake.

Nice family group.

.........................................
At Etherow today there was plenty of wildlife but one unwelcome resident was this 
Terror-Pin sat on a Coots nest so no wonder there isn't many baby coots about with this one probably eating all the eggs!.
Big as a soup bowl!. 
 

Friends have seen a Mandarin in this nest, high up in the branches of this tree well out of the reach of most predators 

The Muscovy's are doing well and have seemed to have weathered the winter alright!.

There's always someone wants to get in the picture isn't there

Looks like a goose has laid this too near to the path and possibly found by a dog, that's what you call scrambled egg!, 

.........................................................................................
A barking dog never bites, Well at least not while its barking!!.

What's a Shiatsu?, a dog?, No a zoo without any animals.

Fred bought a puppy at the pet shop going cheap!.
It cost him a fortune, because it did bird impressions! 

I think my dog must have a very cold nose,
When we walk into a room all the other dogs sit down.
