I was looking for a particular shot last night and found instead another old favourite. It must have been a good morning – in fact it was the day before I retired! There were plenty of water birds on the ponds in front of the Tower Hide at Mai Po. Two images made me smile as I flicked through the day’s shots. Both are landings. The first one has to be the scruffiest looking cormorant I have seen. I don’t think this bird is going to win any beauty pageants soon.
The second looks like air traffic control got it all wrong.
The undercarriage is down, the pilot does a last minute visual check and suddenly sees flight GH444 is parked right on the runway below him, waiting it seems to take off. I don’t recall what happened next.
Thanks for all the comments about the ticker and AF. I bought myself today a gadget for checking your own BP and heart rate. It also warns if the heart rate is erratic. Designed by the Japanese but made in China. I hope it is accurate. Mrs. Ha wants to try it on Lulu. I suspect the cuff would go round Lulu’s torso, not her front leg. I don’t think this is a runner. Work tomorrow although nothing too onerous. Then some more serious use of the brain is required on Tuesday and Wednesday. Not much else this week. Suddenly the sun is out, the temperature is in the 30s (Celsius) and the RH is up to 95%. The heat is on.
