The location is the field pond. A badger came to visit. You can see the badger trying to step onto the Willow Catkins floating on the pond surface. The bed of vegetation made the pond surface look solid, confusing the badger. The badger tries this a couple of times and then backs off. Next, you see the badger walking behind the pond, one slip and he is in for a dunking in the deepest section of the pond. He then makes his escape through the fence into the neighbouring field.
Fantastic, my Bike voucher has arrived, I can buy my bike now. Rang the shop, out of stock, won’t be getting it now until after Glastonbury. I’ve ordered a racing bike, millions of gears and carbon fibre forks, I can pick it up with my little finger. All road users, you have been warned, here comes Tour de Buckinghamshire with team Blasdale Tour in his yellow jersey.

Trying out some action shots with my new Canon EOS 550 on the local bird population. (Feathered variety alas.) One wonders with all those extra pixels whether a new pro lens is in order. Looks like I will have to keep on working a while.
Some more wildlife at the local oasis.
Needless to say, as soon as I went indoors, two pairs of Goldfinches arrived, but not the Greater Spotted Woodpecker who is often to be seen on the peanuts. We’ve also had Long Tailed Tits who were charming. The Greenfinches are highly aggressive and bad tempered.
On the 30th May 2009, Edwina and James held a party for their friends and relatives to celebrate their marriage. Rosemary and I attended, and I took a few photographs to supplement the professional photographer’s.
