Yesterday was not a good day car wise. Twice I had a real struggle trying to engage reverse gear. Not nice in a tight parking space close to a car in front when that's the only direction mine wants to move. Took it to my local garage this morning fearing a gearbox or clutch job. The most probable diagnosis was clutch. Had to leave it there as it finally refused to recognise reverse at all. As it was due for a service and MOT test the consideration was would it be worth having all that done on a 17 year old car. So I had a look at the cars for sale and liked the look of a very reasonably priced used Honda Jazz. Test drove that in the afternoon and found it to be to my liking. A bit of a change from a Mitsubishi Charisma but with my low annual mileage it will do the job for £100 a year less in road tax.
Not much opportunity for nature photography with poor weather and clatting about with car, changing insurance, etc... Did manage one photo of a parent Starling setting off having just fed one of its brood:
