A very nice part of the Lake District ... Some of your last pics are almost certainly taken in Wasdale then i think.

Yes indeed. Because it's not that easy to get to, with only a single road from the west, and being only a few miles from us gaff, we made the best of it.

And they've now got electricity.

I commend Yewbarrow as one of the very best walks in the entire Lake District. Tough, but rewarding.

Did you mislay your mobile charger ?

A question for the ornithologists. We had an after lunch walk round Domfront (and it's 12th century castle) yesterday and I picked up this feather. Any idea which bird it's likely to have dropped from?

Long-tailed Tit Topper.:)
Ah yes, that is what I assumed it was crossed with as my reference pic of a long tailed tit has a lighter head with no patterning however looking on Youtube I see the long tailed is identical to the two feeding at my feeder.

Lojg tail tits are lovely - and often travel round in groups of 7 or 8 so if you see one theres probably lots more somewhere nearby :)

Used to get them fairly regularly at the previous place, only seen them a couple of times since moving here.
