Yo peeps    Although I took the kipper to Barnes today I decided against the heavy Wedgwood’s.  Mind you, the Bigma has a long reach and the visibility boded well. Also I didn’t need to schlep the tripod and gimbleboy around the byways of the reserve which is a necessity when using the Nickelodeon wedgy. The old current did put his titfer on though and the wuzz were enjoying clement weather. Mind you, I think they’ll be a little upset in four nights time when the peeps of Barnes celebrate that rascal Guy’s shenanigans beneath the Houses of P!  My Barnaby Rudge’s today for your delectation are of wuzzoes doing the stretch.  I managed to ‘capture’ a Mrs Comb Duck, lesser white-fronted goosegog, cormorant and red-breasted googlerooney.   Hasta la pasta pals

Yo  Peeps  Surprisingly the weather is still holding good (don’t know what it’s holding on to?) I started my Barnes perambulation with a visit to the sawbill and buffleboys pool and was rewarded with a mashugana bufflehead drake whizzing around, up and undering like a dolphin. Lord Duncan of Deal would have been impressed. I managed to smudge him as he plunged.


My next stop was for a gathering gaggle of geese. A red breasted goose and a lesser white front

Continuing the bucolic circuit I was happy to smudge a black bellied whistling duck

I finished of the smudging sojourn with a portrait of a very handsome falcated drake. It wasn’t easy as I had to wait for the right moment when he lifted his Uncle Ned from the Neptune’s daughter and caught the morning’s contrary current bun!

All in all a rewarding morning and a pleasant outing. I returned to Chelsea in the kipper as I had brought along the big Anthony Wedgwood benn’s which are too cumbersome for the Rubic Cube.    Hasta la Pasta chumsters   x I Jedi d’Quack

Here’s looking at you

You peeps It was a glorious morning yesterday when Lord Moffo and Yours T girdulated our loincloths and ventured fifth to Oare Marsh. Despite the sunshine a mist lay over the scrape. From our favourite spot by the side of the frog the current bun was facing us making it difficult to get a good smudge of the plentiful wuzzoes. I enclose a Barnaby of a collective group of wildfowl luxuriating in the morning sunshine. We returned quite early to Orchard Barn where a delicious lunch was prepared by the chatelaine, Lady Jan of Shaker Heights.

This morning, having returned to Chelsea, I took the Uncle Gus to Barnes and the Wetlands. Fortunately it was another beauteous morn and I was able to get a number of head shots for my oiseaux portrait archive. For your delectation I enclose smudgerooneys of a lesser white fronted goosegog, a white=winged duck and a ferruginous drake (although he was full body but facing forward posing as if for a magazine cover)
