Oh oh...




Two of the 56+ Yellowhammers feeding around the paddocks in Boulmer village at the minute. I was quietly composing these pictures when I felt some heavy breathing behind me ( Not to be recommended in ANY circumstances!) and turned to find this character peering down my viewfinder! Yes, in the words of any Sunday tabloid reporter, I made my excuses and left.

Eee the memories that picture brought back of days spent at Newbiggin wondering where the next dog/horse/gypsy/child/nutter attack was coming from. I read that all the local lifeboats were scrambled at the weekend to save a cow swimming somewhere near you. Didnt happen to leave the gate oipen did you?? :)

Well, Jane says that she saw the said beast ( or 'beece' if you farm locally!)lying flat out in the field today. If you fancy giving it the kiss of life...
