With boat painting and maintenance now the priority a shorter post than of late!
A couple of cycle rides around the local tracks & footpaths over the long weekend has produced some good highlights, including my 100th 'Lockdown List' tick, found by the brilliant Dazza, my ever-patient wife.

Over the previous few weeks, I think I've scoured every field and checked every post I've come across in the hope of finding a Wheatear
, two species high up on my agenda. It was therefore quite remarkable that I'd see both birds within a very short distance of each other and just a few miles from the marina while actually out on a cycle ride. Thank goodness I have the good sense to carry my binoculars and my ever faithful Canon SX50 bridge camera when I'm out cycling.
