The Moon and a couple of birds

Here’s something I haven’t done for a while, and that’s taken some photos.
Sunday saw a full moon, which apparently was a Blood Moon, though most people in the UK didn’t see it due to heavy cloud cover.
Hubby took this picture through our lounge window as we were about to take the dog out for a walk just as it was starting to get dark.
Come time for her final wee at 8.30 ish and we couldn’t see it at all.

In contrast, I took this yesterday.
It was the little chap that initially caught my eye as he was all alone and I wondered what he was. Then Walter here came along and I could see it was too small to be another pigeon, but before I could get another shot off, they both flew away.
In flight I realised it was a kestrel, and remembered we had one visit the garden shortly after we arrived here. He sat on our gate for a few minutes so I got a good look at him, but obviously had no camera to hand then. Shortly after I got a fuzzy shot of it on our back fence.
I’ve cropped the picture but it’s still a bit grainy though better than the last one. Think I’ll call him Sid.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Perhaps Kes might be a more suitable name, if you remember the film.
