A lot of the people who have moved in here come from towns and it has changed things round here badly too. Most see the countryside as a playground and can't understand that work can go on throughout ...

I don't know how much rain we had yesterday, but it really hammered down a couple of times, and we had a few cracks of thunder to boot. With any luck we should have dry, warmer weather now for a bit. ...

Rather than a garden next door and a field at the end of the garden, we now have infill houses next door and a road across the end. We moved here in 82 and the whole area has been built on.

Humming birds are, as you say Jam Lady, very hard to photograph. How they got pictures of them in the days of more manual photography I really don't know. Very fast reflexes is all I can think.
