205/366 The Occasional Obsession

I thought these two lovely birds were yellow wagtails. It appears not; grey wagtails. Yellows have a yellow head and are more yellow generally. Anyhow, I caught this picture this morning, both birds were bobbing about and every so often running over to the little pile of food that I have started putting down for them.

I absolutely love having these two in the garden. Those and the sparrows, starlings, pigeons, magpies and anything else that appears (potentially goldfinches). It is incredibly nice to have them appear.

Not far from us is a nature reserve, Titchfield Haven. Every so often I get the urge to go and spend some time in the hides. I am not an ornithologist, by any stretch of the imagination, but I do enjoy watching birds. Once again, thoughts of taking out membership are filtering in to my mind. My spotter scope is languishing unused in the cupboard. It’s time it saw light.

I have other occasional obsessions; model railways is one, I will have a layout one day. Not so long ago, I went through a phase of reading about philosophers. I re-read (actually I listened to on audible) Sophies World. That lasted a few weeks, and I still have the notes. I may go back to it, but I’m not sure what the endgame was going to be.

I’ll write about my occasional obsessions as they crop up.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
