I know, they are just so very funky.

Except for the being around babies bit. I think I'll stick to birds. I'm not child-friendly in any way.

Although, the Bittern is more common than the great white egret (35 wintering birds in the UK). And, be reasonable, I have photographed the only known albatross in the northern hemisphere. I think I'm doing quite well really. 😂

That would be quite the photo to get!

Yes, I like them. I found some in my Dad’s collection, so ended up getting a few off eBay so that I had sixpences from each of their birth years, mine and my brother’s.

I did the same with the old thruppeny bit, as I’ve always loved them, even when I was very young. It used to amuse me that they were so much bigger than a sixpence.

I really don’t know - I should look it up!

Took the little Panasonic zoom camera out with me this morning, in case the heron was on the lake. It wasn’t, but this was.

I wish, but sadly no.

Except I could probably get one of those to drap me around on a sled or something. They need far more room than I have. Saw one the other day though. Such sweeties. He was very gentle greeting Poppy. She just sat down and gazed up at him.

I have been going through the coins I inherited - mostly British, some going back to the 1890s. They aren’t worth much, but there’s something I like about old coins.
