Robin in song
Now what did I make all that noise for? cos all them blue birds are pinching the nuts.
the pair of Great Tits are on the monkey nuts. the other seven are Blue Tits
and if the word great tit is offensive you can say Parus major. then no one will have a clue what we are talking about
all nine birds are in this picture one is doing its acrobatic routine they love this new feeding station one of the b&b guests left six jam doughnuts. I made them into pieces the sparrows seem to like them.
As I said I had the flue and influensa jabs last Friday. my right arm where I had the influensa Jab feels like I have been in the boxing ring and had a right hook to the muscle. left arm is not so bad . I decided to go for a walk as I only went 300yards Friday to the surgery and back. and my legs stiffen up if I do not go for walks everyday I must go as my doctor says so. I also enjoy my walks as I always take my camera incase I see something I want to photograph. a few times I have been out on walks not feeling up to carrying the canon. total weight with lenses is about 20kilo. and as I have 3 slipped discs I should not carry any more than 10kilo Docs advice, but as long as I take it easy a stop in town for a tea or snack I am usually O,K. but today I got as far as the Dolfor park and started to go giddy. will explain as I go through todays photos,and even though I felt awfull I am pleased I carried on along the river. as I saw another bird I had not seen before and more fungi.,
as I was leaving the house I noticed this clematis out usually this is a spring/summer flower
Bugloss has been in flower since I came back from Egypt almost four months ago as ,some folks ask why did I come back from such a warm climate with all the health problems I had . first if I stayed in Egypt I would be six foot under or as it goes in arab countries 2 ft under, and put in the ground within 24 hours with no post mortem just a note FROM THE CORRUPT DOCTOR “the poor unfortunate man died from histoplasmosis” thats what the docter in Luxor diagnosed me with and for several months I was keeping his brother the pharmacist in money by byuing expensive pills.
I WAS IN A TERRIBLE STATE LOST ALMOST 3 STONE AND HAD A PROBLEM WALKING. ONCE I ARRIVED BACK HOME IN WALES I WENT TO SEE THE DOCTOR, FIRST I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A HERNIA BUT HAD TO WAIT 9 MONTHS TO SEE A SPECIALIST,AS I WAS IN SO MUCH PAIN WITH THIS HUGE LUMP POPPING OUT I HAD TO WALK ABOUT HOLDING MY GROIN STOP IT COMING OUT. SO I WENT PRIVATE , TO THE NUFFIELD HOSPITAL IN SHREWSBURRY TO SEE A SPECIALIST,, THAT WAS ON A MONDAY AND HE BOOKED ME IN FOR THE FRIDAY FOR THE OPP BUT HAD TO GO FOR BLOOD TEST ON THE THURSDAY, WHERE I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH SUGAR DIABETUS, THE COUNT WAS 15 NORMAL ITS BETWEEN 4 AND 7.
GOT TO GET YOUR BLOOD NORMAL BEFORE WE CAN OPPERATE THEY SAID. SO IT WAS BACK TO MY DOCS FOR ADVICE AND PILS FOR SUGAR DIABETUS. GOT MY LEVELS LOW ENOUGH WITHIN THREE WEEKS. RABBIT FOOD NO FAT AND NO CHOLESTAROL, AS THAT WAS ALSO WAY HIGH,
IT TOOK A FEW WEEKS TO GET TO SOME KIND OF NORMALITY AFTER THE OPP IE BIRDING AND GETTING OUT FOR WALKS.
