Well a few birds from my walk. Its all a bit quiet, even the Goldfinches have been absent but I did see some today. I have yet to see a a winter finch but part of that is my walks are more urban of late. They tend to come into town a bit later.
I have seen a Kingfisher close to my house twice in a week! I think I'd seen it twice there in the past 4 years!

All I've done this week is walk. I've already passed my total for last year of 2203 miles!
So what has happened?
I've had a haircut and much to many of my friends shock bought a tablet. I've been talking about it for uh months and maybe months.
Why? well I have a small laptop that I use as a backup and for travel (a Microsoft Go) but that won't take windows 11 now I know that windows 10 doesn't go out of support until October 2025 but it is a little slow. I was going to buy the latest replacement BUT Microsoft has made the latest variant, the 4, business only.
I deliberately want a small device to fit my small cabin bag so a tablet it is. There are problems like Elements won't run on a tablet and the software I use to bulk reduce files for the blog is windows only but I've used Snapseed as an editor on the phone. The device arrived Tuesday and I have found a bulk app to reduce files that seems to work so for holidays I am set. I did buy a keyboard cover and I am not sure I needed it as I don't tend to write lots these days but I have it just in case. This post is a test run.
I mentioned that the geese were about but they fly about. There were 26 the other day (easily a record) and then none. I walked to Netteswell pond this morning. It is the last pond but I don't often visit, I tend to go in winter in the open a Tufted Duck might appear but nothing . It does seemd to attract gulls and there were a few Herring and a number of Common Gulls. I did walk to the New Hall pond later and there were 19 geese. Oddly I've only ever seen 1 Greylag!
I also mentioned that one of the cheeky foals that wander on to the bridlepath had been removed. I assumed there were only 2 left but today the brown and one had 2 friends with him. They walked to the edge of the common but only the cheeky brown and white one left the common.
Tomorrow I'm off to a concert to see the Sixteen :)
Keep warm, it is cold out there!!
