Sad news

Feel a bit sad this evening having heard that a swan on our local common has died.
I've been photographing this magnificent swan for a few years now, and he really was an amazing creature. This summer he and his mate had hatched seven cygnets as they did last year. whenever I walked over the common I always made sure to go take a look and have a little chat, frankly he had alot of attitude and always complained when I tried to get a close up!
A few weeks ago he was attacked by a dog and now we learn of his demise. 
You can read the story here.






Such a terrible avoidable death of such a noble animal.
I'm not a dog person.
But I don't object to dogs being off their leads mooching around, however they need to be well trained and supervised and their owners need to be mindful that where wild animals are they should take extra care.
That's what I think.
Doesn't seem much to me.
Thanks for listening

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …
