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.
