Perfect Day

Thanks to Lou Reed for today’s title. Today is our wedding anniversary – we have been married many years! We decided to try and beat the weather by cycling to the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge. We were hoping to see a Glossy Ibis that has been near the canal at Slimbidge.


Yes we saw it! It reminded us of the time about 12 or 15 years ago when 17 of these birds turned up near the river and the village had many bird watchers from all over the country turn up.

Clare had expected me to make sure she saw some wild Common Cranes. No Worries!!!! Miraculously I managed to book two of them to appear.

We were delighted to see two fly overhead (sadly couldn’t get my camera ready in time). Tonight we rounded off with a lovely Indian meal. What a great day!
