nature's ways

The blackbirds have nested again in our hedge just outside our kitchen, we saw 3 eggs in the nest, & low & behold the magpies have had the eggs again. A friend in a flat on the other side of the building overlooking where i filmed the 5 foxes a few years ago saw at least 5 last week, some obviously being youngsters. We have seen odd ones about  in our grounds, but we haven't seen them where their den was until last week. It was in the afternoon when they were seen.
   I also put a bird box on the fence, & pleased to say blue tits are in and out of it, so something's going on.

Blackpool tower

Blackpool tower
The picture shows the view from the top of the tower looking down through the new glass floor, in August before the comedy patio thing which is brilliant, was finished. The illuminations are good in my oppinion, we had a trip through the lights on the coach, a Chris Cooper coach trip, highly recomended.
