The Buzzard Above Our House.


There was actually two buzzards circling each other when Carole called to me. I came out with the camera and began trying to use the zoom lens as they drifted away. At first I thought the lower one had something in its beak? However as I studied the photos, the raptor's wing feathers look damaged. Perhaps it had been in a fight of some sort. 

Some of the creature's flight feathers appear to be missing. I think the pair are nesting by some trees across the Fen, close to the river. 









When You Sense the Day will be Wonderful


I got up on the Tuesday of April 19th 2016. It was a glorious morning and as I looked out from my front drive across the fields, I decided that I should get a photo on the mobile camera. As one can see the morning mist on the Fen, there was a promise of a fine day because the dew is already rising. Or at least that is what I like to believe. Tuesdays are also wonderful days at work. We go out into these far flung fields and empty the bins. We make our way into two small villages right on the Lincolnshire boarder.

One hamlet is called Newton and the other is Tydd St Giles. Both are very tranquil English villages - quiet and modest nestled amid the farmlands of the Fens.

As the day went along it got better with the sun climbing towards the afternoon zenith. The birds were tweeting away and there was a light breeze. We loaded bins for about four hours following the lorry as it slowly moved along the country lanes. We stopped by an old church in Newton for a cup of tea and a sandwich. I walked around and took a few more shots on the mobile. 

Afterwards we worked our way along the country lanes where fields of rapeseed were brilliant yellow. Gradually we edged closer to the little village of Tydd St Giles. I had to stop here and take a few more shots of their old church too. We moved on and finally finished just outside of the village. The lorry was full and we took a last brake before returning to the town of March where the rubbish tip is.

The Pre-War Riley Car Paint Stripped Down to Metal



As we were finishing our bin loading round on Wednesday 20th April 2016, we came out of the village of Wimblington into the village of Doddingtopn in the Fenland of Cambridgeshire. It was a glorious day and we had been out in the rural parts of the land. We were content and feeling happy as the last bin went in the lorries' bin lifts. 


We decided to pull into a small lay by further up the road as one enters the village of Doddington. There on the drive of a cottage was parked a pre-war open topped Riley car. It was stripped of paint work and I suppose the owner was midway through a restoration of the beautiful looking motor.


I had a walk around it and took a few shot on the mobile phone camera. See what you think of the old Riley car?

It Must Be Him - Vikki Carr





I told my wife that on my lighter moments, I like to think she sings this while waiting for me to call from work.

She replies, "No way."

But I don't believe her. :D
