Wheelchair bird watching

Parakeets can survive in the UK because the originate from the Himalayas
As soon as I am in the living room in the mornings the curtains go back and I study the garden for birds. This time of the year the birds are on the move what you think are your birds are invariably relocating to slightly warmer climes for the winter and are replaced by migrants from the Scandinavian countries and Russia. So the Robin that has lived in the hedge at the rear of our garden all summer is most probably now eating breakfast in Paris for the winter.  Some birds have migrated back to their winter sites in Africa or around the Mediterranean and wont be seen again until next spring. Read more about how and why birds migrate on the RSPB Website. And dont forget to feed our feathered friends during the cold winter months

Glad to get back to Margate, I love Thanet

We had an early start, I had to get up just after four am.  to be ready for the ambulance to take me to Kings Hospital in London. It was a rotten journey up with both the M2 and A2 like slow motion car parks. The driver had to make two o the pick ups enroute and had trouble with road works an rerouting. I arrived in time, just in time. The journey back was okay a couple of drop offs and then sleep. I woke again at Saint Nicolas Roundabout! I was so pleased to be home. I love Margate, we may moan about traffic  things but after the amount of cars and lorries in London Margate is a fiddle. Margate I missed you.

Thanet weather forecast service

Just received a phone call from friends who are shopping at Westwood Cross. the rain we were promised is as far as WWX,. Evidently rather than drive to meet us they are having coffee in Marks and Spencer. The description was "the rain is coming down in sheets" .Here in Margate a few drops that have hardly wet the path.You have to love a LOCAL weather report.
