The weather is unbelievably good up north. The Brexit people have drawn ahead in the polls and even some Poles are joining us. Camoron is a lying useless piece of pig poking toast or one step nearer. All is well with the world. My world and selective bits of it. The downside is that I hoyked my body miles and miles this afternoon to find Dragonflies or Great Crested Newts I found a dead frog being eaten by a naughty Rook and a comatose Saint Mark’s fly on a Reed.
It’s been a busy day, this morning we went to fetch an excavator and it involved reversing up a mile of track, roasting track, dusty track it was. Then we had to grease up another machine and swap a rock pecker for a bucket.
All go but I got an ice cream at the shop on the way back. It’s years since I’ve had an ice cream, I got a Ninety Niner as it was the only name I recognised. By Gum it was posh it came already made with a clear plastic lid and a cardboard wrapper on it. I was struggling to work out how to access it but the lass in the shop sorted it for me. It was okay, The lass in the shop was perfect one of the rare Scots with yards and pounds of curly red hair on her head, freckles on her nose and cheeks, gorgeous. The ice cream was cold but the flake was a bit stingy I thought. My mate had a Magnum but it was a bit complex for me; like an ice cream on a stick..Glad I didn’t risk one of those as it would have run all over my fingers and as they were covered in digger crap I wouldn’t have fancied licking them.
Tea time arrived and with it. A fox at bay.
I know I ought to shout Tally Ho or after the bastard but I like them. They are wee devils if you don’t shut the hens up but when it has shed the last of it’s winter coat it will look a real bobby dazzler. It’s looking for rabbits.
Buck at Bay, cheeky little blighter eating barley. Not Landseer but still quite cute. I don’t know why but I took loads of pictures of him and I see them everyday. The fox is a less frequent sighting so I’ll show another of it.
I think it knows I’m here. I just wish it would catch more rabbits.
