It hasn’t just been hot this past week or so, it has been ridiculous. If I had thought to, I am sure I could have cooked an egg on the pavement. But I couldn’t think, because the heat has been melting my brain. Obvious signs of it being ‘too hot’, our feather friends have been… Read More Pool Party…
Each morning I get awoken by Peanut for breakfast. Cats are very routine. So as it happens, are seagulls. Every day now our resident gull pecks on the door or window to get my attention for food. If I am in another room when he does it, Peanut comes and gets me. I don’t know… Read More Erm, excuse me, I’m hungry!
Where have I been? Erm at home mostly. Hiding indoors with AC on. It is so damn hot and humid. But seriously, I would have blogged if I had been able. But our ram got loose. Yes I know that this sounds like a small farming incident, but I have been assured it is in… Read More A fairly good excuse…
Our neighbours have just had triplets. Ah they are so cute. So sweet to look at. They cry a lot. And their dad who looks a bit overwhelmed keeps swooping in and out during the day checking on them. Mummy on the other hand doesn’t leave their side. She stands guard. They keep getting people… Read More The Birds
I have been on cat feeding duty for a couple of weeks now. The first delightful moggy was based just around the corner from us, but my other furry friend is based opposite our old flat. Which is right down the other end of Gibraltar, which seems soooo far now! 😉 When my friend asked… Read More Alameda Botanic Gardens
People are mean to pigeons. I on the other hand quite like them. I think they are pretty to look at. We get a lot on the roof terrace. Much to the cats amusement. She sits and stares at them, making a weird clicking sound or high-pitched mew.
The weather of late has not been very dry. It has been pouring. And pouring. Then raining some more. Last night the thunder came out for a while, and I am told (I slept through it) it stuck around all night. However, during a small break in the rain last week we went for a… Read More Going East…
The new garden that is very close to completion down by Kings Wharf caught my eye today. Not just because it looks really pretty (although the little hills look a weeny bit like Tellytubby Land) and green, but because it seems it is now the place to be if you are a gull. The pond… Read More Gulls
Now for those of you familiar with the Facebook page of Brit on the Rock, you will have seen some of these shots, but I took so many that I decided I would do a post for Mr Peacock as he is such a glamorous looking creature! If you want to go and see this… Read More Peacock – The Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park – Gibraltar
So birds. I love them. I know bugger all about them. I can spot a sparrow, magpie, black bird, crow or gull. I even now know a few of the types of gull because of living here in Gibraltar as we have an absolute ton of them flapping around, but beyond that I am completely… Read More The Birds… Seville, not Hitchcock.
So today was ZOO DAY. Not a national or global or Hallmark holiday, but one I created just for me! Since the Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park has reopened I have been meaning to pop by, I knew from the last time I went I would need a good hour or so with my camera, so… Read More Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park – Gibraltar
