Well that put the kibosh on it, didn't it ?
|The daft look of a pb triumph!!|
I wasn't the only one blanking mind you, but there you go, no excuses.
I'll just have to wait a couple of weeks for another go.
Stopped for B&B at mum's place to help shorten what was already a very long day.
In the meantime maybe an evening trip to the middle Trent is needed. Tomorrow sounds good.
Is this a Water rail?
Accompanying me for part of my 12 hour stint was this little bird.
I've never seen one before, but I think it is a water rail. Too much of a beak for a moorhen ? Olive coloured feet, but the rest of the colouring doesn't look quite right from my books, so it could be in moult, or a juvenile.
Or....a juvenile moorhen!
An American fighter plane was flying over Afghanistan when the pilot noticed a flying carpet on each side of his plane, both armed with a machine gunner on board.
Sensing danger he shot them down.
Back at base he got a right bollocking.
Apparently they were Allied Carpets.
There are more but I keep them for my next blank.
Nothing like a water rail!!!
|A proper one|
