IS THIS A RECORD?…

IS THIS A RECORD? I spotted ten magpies, together in trees overlooking the Rumbridge Street car park this morning. I got this shot to prove it. I have not seen more than five or six together beforehand, let alone got a shot of it.

TO ASK OR NOT TO ASK…. THAT IS THE QUESTION……..

TO ASK OR NOT TO ASK…. THAT IS THE QUESTION….. It's interesting to see the different approaches taken by neighbouring local authorities when it comes to setting the council tax.
