I heard the very sad news last night that ex Thin Lizzy and legendary blues/rock guitarist Gary Moore had died in his sleep in his hotel room in Spain. He was only 58 and it came as such a shock; I am sure he had many more years of 'string bending' ahead of him. He will be sorely missed.

I had to go to a meeting at Penrith today and on my way back at teatime I called at my feeding station on Rawcliffe Moss to feed the Tree Sparrows. Surprisingly, as it was late, there were still 130 Tree Sparrows there and I also had a flock of at least 100 Fieldfares feeding in the stubbles in the 'Big Field'. Two Buzzards flew over calling as I headed back to the car.
