First Cuckoo.

Not a lot has happened since my last blog. We are still moored in Castleford so we can keep visiting my mother. On Sunday the eigth we went for a meal with Jennifer,Malcolm and Mali(Jennifer and Malcolms daughter)at the Boat inn in Allerton Bywater. We have also planted our bedding plants while we have time on our hands. On the tenth we took an evening walk over to Fairburn Ings to do a spot of bird watching. We saw several different species of birds and ducks including Goldfinches,a Jay, a heron,Shelduck,Swans and Cormerants. As we were walking back we heard our first Cuckoo of the year, unfortunately we didn't see it. Last Friday we hired a car and drove down to Pamela and Nathans for the weekend. The fine weather gave us the chance of a barbecue on Friday evening, another first for this year. We arrived back this morning ready to hand the car back before midday. It was a good weekend with the grandchildren. Tomorrow we will walk up the river to see my mum again.
