Thursday’s Special

It’s raining a lot in the UK. Where my mum lives, Marlow, the River Thames has burst its banks. It’s an amazing sight to see where you were walking a little while ago completely under water. Here are a couple of photos from this afternoon….

Meet Greystar the Black-headed Gull

Flying high on the lookout for dinner

IMG_9707When scanning the water he saw some bread

 And thought “Dive! Dive-I’m onto a winner!”

He entered the lake with a splash

IMG_9727

And pecked up the large piece of bread

IMG_9732

It was a bit too big to fly with

So he jumped up the side instead!

Greystar began to wonder

If he’d bitten off more than he could chew!

IMG_9745

He thought that to flap his wings

Would be the best thing to do!

I know you’re all really interested

In whether Grey’s tummy got filled

But you’ll have to come back tomorrow

When all will be revealed!

When I went for a walk by the canal this week, it was such a beautiful, still day and I managed to take these photos….

I also took these but sadly I couldn’t get far enough away (due to some rather large bushes) to enable me to fit the whole building and canal boat in…so here’s what I did fit in!

 But then she saw

Lush green grass galore….

And walked off to fill her tummy instead!

Here’s Maurice the Magpie

Whose feet were so cold….

What with aerials made of metal!

He spotted a sheep

All fluffy and warm….

So he decided on her he would settle!

Here’s Erica Ewe

A gentle soul….

Who's lately been seeing a therapist!

Her problem you see

Oh fiddle dee dee!

Is she's become an escapologist!

Meet Marmaduke the Muscovy Duck….

"Hmpf!" said Marmaduke, "I suppose I'd better get in the water but it ain't half cold on my feet!"

“Hmpf!” said Marmaduke, “I suppose I’d better get in the water but it ain’t half cold on my feet!”

Within moments Marmaduke was steaming across the canal….

IMG_8691

He put on his best streamlined shape to get across as fast as possible!

Once on the other side, Marmaduke had a jolly good shake and prepared to look at the beautiful sunset! (Please note-he didn't hurt his neck in this manoeuvre fortunately!)

"Ah!" sighed Marmaduke, "Warm feet and the sun sparkling up there! What could be better?" Marmaduke was often much more poetic than this but had had a tiring day at work!! (Or is that me?)

I could not believe the colours I saw on closer inspection of these wee beasties……

 

I thought I knew what colour these critters were….but red, yellow and blue were not amongst the colours I thought!

I’m sure you’ve guessed what they are but here’s another close up anyway…

Amazingly bright!

I found these prawns in the Fish Market in Fethiye, Turkey.

You will see why I think he might be a member…..

Thursday’s Special:

You think I'm a pretty foxglove, With beautiful pinks and spots, But I have got a problem, That bothers me lots and lots! I find I have no confidence, When it comes to going out! I have some whiskers on my chin That have just begun to sprout!

You think I’m a pretty foxglove,
With beautiful pinks and spots,
But I have got a problem,
That bothers me lots and lots!
I find I have no confidence,
When it comes to going out!
I have some whiskers on my chin
That have just begun to sprout!

 

Shauna Sheep had a problem too, She wished the farmer had been kind... You see she was getting chilly now, Because of how he'd sheared her behind!!

Harry Horsefly had bad press, Because of his horrible habits! But really he didn't give a damn  As long as the poo was rabbit's!!

Pretty, delicate, sweet are you, Oh feather so fluffy and light! But you must get so lonely out here, When day turns into night!
