Well the internet came back which was handy! It died last night.
Given the weather forecast was for rain today turned out ok. Well if grey skies in August can be ok.
I popped into Slimbridge and did a bit of birding and took photos of the collection. Saw my first Spotted Redshank of the year, AUGUST!! Seemed fairly quiet. So have a look at some photos.
Birds do choose odd places to nest.
Given the price of Sandwiches £3? for something in a packet? I moved on and ended up at Westbury Court Garden which is the only surviving example of a Dutch Water Garden in the uk.
I then went to Bishops Cleeve to tick the live and Norman 626 St Michael and All Angels.
And finally 627 the very small St Mary's Great Washbourne (the last church on my target list for Gloucestershire!!). You'll note in one picture it is whitewashed but you can see fragments of wall paintings.
And this is sad. I was wondering where to go tomorrow and I'm thinking no can't go there I went there last year and that is on the blog!! So I may go somewhere new I may show you somewhere you've seen before!!
Oh hang on where is Alton Barnes? It has a church I need in Wiltshire!!
