Swiss Holiday Video

At least one of my loyal followers has noticed my absence recently (well done, Paula!)   Judith and I are away on what has now become our annual UK road trip, gathering photos for me to post in the coming weeks.  I’ll not give too much away but stay tuned for some glorious beaches…

In the meantime, I thought I’d post this video, which was created by my niece, Jennifer, of their time staying with us in Switzerland.  It’s exactly a month ago now since I posted some pictures, but this tells the story of their holiday much better I think.  Enjoy!

Switzerland 2017 starring, Alastair, Adam, Karen, Jennifer, Judith and yours truly…!

Weekend weather…

So, how was your weekend ?  Ours was interesting as you will see…

Firstly, I was going to post some of the following pictures last Friday, but didn’t quite get around to it.  As you will see we had a little bit of snow on Thursday/Friday – about 8″ or 20cm to be precise.  This did however mean that the birds flocked to our feeding station, where I spotted the following, without even leaving the chalet:  Blackbirds, Song Thrush, Ring Ousel, Chaffinches, Greenfinches, Marsh or Willow Tits, Coal Tit, Blue Tits, Great Tits, Siskins and a Rock Bunting.

Secondly, if you read my post of yesterday, (note, which was only 2 days later), you will have seen that the snow had all gone.  This is what it looked like on my way to the Combat de Reines:

8 Yesterday

And then, of course, today, the 1st May, the snow is back again…
