gold star Lots of correct guesses for last week's mystery photo. Congratulations and the virtual gold star to TexWisGirl, Sue Garrett, Glo, Ragged Robin, Bonnie and Adrian who worked out it is an owl lurking behind all that distortion. In fact a cast concrete owl:

Guess What1


This week we are back to a closer view of an object.
Guess What:

Clue: I don't think any owls will be amongst its visitors.

No prizes. Just for fun.
Answer will be revealed next Monday along with any guesses left in the comments.

Stormy Weather.
Once again the news media reports very bad weather in the South of England as though all of Britain was deluged and blasted by stormy winds. Then, when did any media let the whole truth get in the way of attracting readers.

Although my part of the country was forecast to have gale force gusts this morning along with heavy rain the highest gust recorded here was around 15mph. Yesterday was worse before the storm reached us. Up to 36mph gusts were recorded. They did get the timing of the rain, if not the quantity, correct. Started about 4 a.m. and cleared soon after 11 a.m. and dumped all of 0.75 inches (19mm) in that time.


  1. It's a fat ball John.
    Nothing much here either.

  2. I think it look like a suet cake with seeds, for your lovely bird friends.

  3. glad your area is well.

    i'm going to guess suet cake or birdseed fat ball - whatever you wish to call it.

  4. A total shot in the dark but it looks like part of a fat ball or seed cake put out for the birds, A mixture of fat, seed and other bird goodies. If I had to go for one it would be a fat ball as it seems rounded.

  5. a suet ball for your very coddled birdie visitors!

  6. Its almost time for these items here too. My guess is a fat ball?.

  7. Would it be a Birdy Bistro treat - a fat ball ?

  8. Struggling with this weeks! but just had a moment of inspiration. Is it possibly a close up photo of a fat ball?? Sure I am hopelessly wrong but my best guess!

    Glad you missed worst of the storm - similar here just torrential rain and just a little bit windy.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
