Friday 6th December
Think that I can safely repeat my opening sentence from yesterday’s entry, as it has been wet and windy again, and Margaret saw that pesky Sparrowhawk out in the garden. The weather with the wind/ dirty showers has not lead to much birdwatching taking place. I counted a total of 13 Pheasants at one time earlier on and then this afternoon, there was a charm of over 15 Goldfinches around.
This evening, I have just been watching a program on the TV about Doddie Weir and his battle against MND. A great program about a great man, and he was in the company of John Beattie, another great rugby player in his day as well…
