A Wednesday afternoon at Bloors

Hi all, I have been busy this week so not been out. Yesterday I made may way over to Mike and Sue to help them clean their carpet. We were going to do this last week when it was nice drying weather but I was waiting for a took kit for the carpet cleaner. Well yesterday we managed to do it and that meant that the carpet was wet.

After eating lunch I took Mike out while Sue went shopping for dinner. I took Mike to Bloors Wharf . The wind was a bit cold and gusting but when the sun was out, nice. The tide was out and the "deep water channel" was full of Gulls. After a few pictures I went back to the car and got the telescope.

When I had set it up we both had a look at the edge of the main channel. There were Red Shank's, Oyster Catchers, and a bird that I could not ID as it was too far away.

Here are some of the picture I took before I used the telescope.

Great Black Backed Gull
Try saying that quickly 5 times

Make way


I think this is a Red Shank but it could be a Godwit

And of course no blog of Bloors would be compete without a picture our two wonderful PS's which won't be there for much longer, make the most of them is what I say...

Kingsnorth in all it's glory


To finish off 

Two Mallard's
When Mike and I got home the carpet was still damp so we could not walk on it, should be ok this morning
