Misty morning, but not as bad as yesterday.
A lightening visit this morning, just the north lake. A lot of things to do today.
Topped up the feeders, and noticed that they don't seem to empty as quickly, as they used to. I guess the new squirrel proof feeders are working. Worth the extra expense I think.
All the usual and regular birds this morning, but no sign of the diver at his usual spot.
But as I began my walk to the road bridge, to cross over the lake, I saw him surface in the area just outside the pub. Good to see, and I managed plenty of video.
Off to the shops, and stopped to pick up my prescription on the way home.
I stopped taking most of my tablets some time ago; didn't like the side effects.
The pharmacist asked if she could take my blood pressure.
Seems it's higher than a kite on a windy day.
She suggested I see the doctor ASAP.
I think I'll cut down a bit on the drink.
