There were up to 5 White Wagtail at the airfield including this male
With the strong SE wind, it was not that surprising to see a Black Redstart, Chiffchaff and Blackcap in the garden first thing this morning. There was also a male Pied wagtail in the castle gardens and just around the corner on the football field there were a single Stonechat, 9 Skylark, and a my first 3 White Wagtail of the year. A taxi up to airport produced another 5 White with 10 Pied Wagtail, 6 Skylark and 15+Meadow Pipit. Graham on St Agnes had 20 White Wagtail and a pair of reed Bunting.
3 White wagtail were on the Garrison football field
Working on a track at the entrance of Star Castle today and lifted up two large rocks and discovered a high total of 18 Australian Flat Worms! This is the first time that I've recorded them in this area. Normally there found quite easily (but not in these numbers) at the other end of the garden near the football pitch. It's not a good sign and I'm afraid I had to kill all 18
Sunset from the Garrison
Last week we spread lime on the fields at Holy Vale and as a result, John kept bumping into things.
Returning from the fields we stopped off at the charity shop and got this! We can't wait to try it out. Not together of cause. I just wanted to clear that. I mean, how stupid would that be. We can't both fit on the toilet together at the same time! Anyway, John's got to first find the toilet. The last time I saw him, he was still trying to find his home!
This is tremendous! Herbert Jeffrey "Herbie" Hancock (born April 12, 1940) is an American pianist, keyboardist, bandleader and composer. As part of Miles Davis's Second Great Quintet, Hancock helped to redefine the role of a jazz rhythm section and was one of the primary architects of the "post-bop" sound. He was one of the first jazz musicians to embrace music synthesizers and funk music (characterized by syncopated drum beats). Hancock's music is often melodic and accessible; he has had many songs "cross over" and achieved success among pop audiences. His music embraces elements of funk and soul while adopting freer stylistic elements from jazz. In his jazz improvisation, he possesses a unique creative blend of jazz, blues, and modern classical music, with harmonic stylings much like the styles of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.
