The photos below were taken on Thursday (15th) afternoon a couple of hours after we saw the otter in the mill stream ...
We've not seen a cat roaming the marina before
he/she has lovely markings ... rather like a jaguar.
We've started to have some interest in the bird feeders too
On Friday (16th) after a busy week with the hire car attending dentists, travel clinic, etc., and generally making use of the car, George returned it to Enterprise in Reading.
Last year whilst moored here at Hambleden for the winter we purchased gym memberships for three months and attended five mornings each week. We're not doing that this year (saving our pennies for spending in Oz) so will have to put on our thinking caps to decide how we're going to spend a few hours away from Still Rockin' each week.
On Saturday we went on our usual circular walk ... here looking over the Thames at Hambleden Mill and two fishermen canoeing into the weir stream
There were lots of Red Kites taking advantage of the sunshine
We see the fishermen again as we recross the weir on our way home
Sunday the woodpecker is back on the coconut shell which contains seeds etc., encased in fat ... he seems to like it!
Monday (19th) was a day of sunshine and showers.
George took the photo above of a rainbow over the river ...
and these two of the local kingfisher atop the water point stand
at the side of Still Rockin'.
