Yes, that is how old I feel some days but it actually refers to this being my 2500th blog post since I took a deep breath and started out in Blogger Land, January 2009. I knew not whether anyone would look at and read what I had to say and show. It has been a very pleasant experience and pass-time and I am eternally grateful for those who have visited and for those who leave comments.
One of the photos from that first post was of this juvenile Great Tit enjoying a peanut
I think one of my favourites of those early photos is this Rook balancing on the thinnest of twigs
I used to see my favourites much more frequently back then
My constant companion was Bobby the Lurcher
Enough of looking back. What of the future? One thing is for sure, I will keep blogging so you readers will have to put up with my wittering for a few more years yet. What has amazed me is the variety of places where my visitors reside. According to 'Flag Counter' they have come from 159 different countries. It just shows how the internet has no bounds or barriers, apart from a few political ones.
This past year or so there has been little variety and numbers of wildlife visiting my garden. That has been partly due to the tidying up and general clearance of overgrown bushes and trees nearby but as new plants grow and flourish I look forward to seeing and photographing more visitors.
Of course, blogging works in both directions giving an opportunity to find interesting and informative blogs from all corners of the world.
