Home again after my operation

Yesterday I had my hernia operation and now I’m home again and hoping my recovery will go swiftly.

Operation next week

I still can’t get out and about much at the moment, but the good news is that I will have my hernia operation next Tuesday (20/05/2014).

I have been taken some photographs, so I thought I would show some of them below.

I managed to get within 4 metres of the this Beaver, feeding along the edge of a stream

Here are some more Brambling pictures ( we have over 200 in the garden each day now).

We also have at least 6 Short-eared Owls displaying around the village at the moment (a sign that the small mammal population has increased significantly again).  I haven’t yet got any really good pictures of them yet, but I’m working on it.

A new sheath for Emma’s knife

It is a very cold spring we experiencing. Today it has only been 1 degree C, with snow showers. There are not many summer migrant birds that have arrived, though just now we do have a lot of Brambling (Fringilla montifringilla) in the garden.

I am still not working a currently await a date for an operation on my hernia. While at home I decided to make a new sheath for a knife I made for Emma a while back.

Emma designed the sheath herself and helped make it.
