Hot and bothered

This is the longest period of warm/hot weather I have experienced. Mid to high twenties every day for the last two weeks. Drink plenty of water is the answer. Stay indoors. Do nothing!!

Moved again

We are now living in Hangman's Lane not far from our most recent address in Briary Lane. It took us about thirty minutes to move our belongings and two bicycles. Not bad.

The visible wildlife in the garden so far include a rabbit and a squirrel plus assorted birds - mostly blackbirds. The day's warmth is increasing and at 10.19 a.m I am indoors hiding from the sun. Not a daywalker.

The search continues for a permanent dwelling. I fancy Welwyn Garden City, Stevenage or Hitchin. Tomorrow we are visiting St. Alban's. Maybe we'll both like it.

Strange bird

We both saw an unusual bird in the garden of our current temporary domicile. The image is fading already.

Roughly top to bottom - there is a language convention associated with parts of a bird but I don't know what it is - strong short beak; small white tuft on head; green stripe on body; white dot or spot near its bottom.

Memory decay is now present. I don't remember the body colours. There was a blackbird beside the strange bird. it, the blackbird, was smaller.

Must get a film for the camera.
