We’ve been staying with my parents while we wait for our new place to be finished and ready to move into. This week we’ve noticed a family of birds on the wire fencing. I’ve been told they are red crowned sparrows, please correct me if that’s wrong. The Mum and Dad birds have been flying about catching food and feeding the chicks which have been perched on the fence.

My Dad said I should be out photographing them and reluctantly I took out the big camera and stuck on my 100mm lens, the biggest I currently have with me. I eventually managed to get this shot and had to bow down to my Dad and admit he was right. I’ve zoomed into the picture, hence it looks a bit grainy.

Below is what it looks like without zooming in. I did patiently wait one evening to see if I could get another shot with the chick facing me, but alas a certain 3 year old preschooler put paid to that! Still, not bad hey?

Well, we just about made it. Leaving at 11.10am Tuesday morning from South Wales, we finally arrived at my parents place near Tavira at 6.10pm Thursday evening. Road trip to Portsmouth, 24 hours to Santander and then 13 hours on the road through Spain to Portugal. But we’re here and it’s sunny, reminding us why we made the decision to up sticks and move us, child, dog and belongings over 1000 miles.
I have to say the ferry was quite a nice trip. We didn’t really get bored, there was plenty to do in between seeing and sorting the dog. Each child’s meal comes with a Brittany Ferries goodie bag and between them and his new Leap Pad Epic, BattleKid was well sorted. More to come about our trip down soon. Hope you’ve all had a nice week and weekend so far.
