The hole in the wall pub on Sloane Square Underground platform. Also had a resident cat. Drank their many times. Closed 1985. Shame.

My favourite bench - right in the corner of the village reservoir and about half way on our walk around it.
Now I am a man of leisure Tara and I have spent many hours sitting here this last month watching all the lovely waterfowl and the anglers in the boats. The simple things in life are the best.:grinning:

Somewhere between Roscoff and Plymouth this afternoon.


#491

Did you fall off the ferry??


#492

Ha no but it was very breezy on top deck.


#493

Are they Schumann waves in the background?

Seville, shitty camera phone


#496

Ooh, I love Seville.


#497

great city


#498

The otters at the reservoir were clearly feeling brave this morning.


#499

Wels catfish. How long was it?


#500

Are the otters easy to spot, would love to see them.


#501

No - I haven’t seen them for nearly a year and I walk round the reservoir at least once a day. The times I did see them it was gloomy and overcast and very first thing in the morning.
I was speaking to an angler this morning who gets there first thing and he says he has seem recently.

They tend to hunt from dusk till dawn (the reservoir is fairly busy with anglers and walkers during the day so I guess they hide).

You’ll have to be up before the crack of dawn, or get some night vision goggles.


#502

I assumed it was a pike?
Length must have been about 60-70cm.


#503

It might well be. Certainly looks a bit flattened & wide from this angle. Perhaps more teeth visible than a catfish would show too.

Scarlet tiger moth in the garden:


#505

Not scarlet enough. Refund please. Plus there doesn’t seem to be any tiger.

#506

The wings are bright red underneath - I did ask it to turn over so I could take a photo but it ignored me. So I smacked it with a badminton racket.:smiling_imp:


#507

Looks like a pike to me - could be a zander if you have those in the reservoir.
