A visit to Berry Head in the winter sunshine
The Guardhouse building is now a visitor centre and cafe
Looking through the battlements.......
....and down a well trodden path...can you guess what's at the end?
The lovely Soay Sheep of course...looking very happy don't you think?
positively smiling and enjoying the sunshine in the safety of the moat
A very distressing story on the news about abandoned horses in Kent. I'm including the link to this story but please don't click on it if you are easily upset as it has some terrible images which made me cry. Link here. It's just to say we must be aware of abandoned donkeys, ponies and horses as we are travelling about. Let us good people keep an eye out for anything unusual or maybe take a few moments just to stop and check they are OK no matter where you live. If you live in Kent or know people who do, please pass this message on.
On a much happier note my lovely neighbours lost their dog Mario on Sunday evening whilst out walking. He was found safe and well yesterday evening, but rather smelly and stressed, after being trapped in a cave over in Brixham. They worked so hard to find him, out day and night in terrible weather searching and calling for him and leaving flyers will all the local dog walkers. Here is the link to his rescue details and pictures on doglost.co.uk.
With a cold snap upon us I've had some success with garden birds visiting the feeders. Mrs Blackbird is still looking fine and healthy but a new male (possibly) and female are in the garden regularly and chasing her off . I've also had a male Blackcap visiting the fat feeders for the last few days, as well as Robins, Dunnocks, Sparrows and Wood Pigeons. I've had to go out and have a chat with a Herring Gull and tell him to go fishing instead of stealing crumbs from the little birds.
With clear blue skies and calm waters the swans have been out on the sea over at Goodrington and came across for a paddle towards Broadsands this morning. I wasn't about with the camera to photograph them, but watched them through the binoculars.
Looks like we're going to have mostly sunny days for the rest of the week in Torbay
I hope you are all well
Until next time
