With no work for a little while longer, have managed to get out and about between Christmas and the New Year!! The wood is being lashed with high winds and rain but we and the trees stand firm!! Up on the moors we found Grouse and on the way back came across the Kestral and the Fieldfare, with one of our resident Buzzards standing guard over his field, he now has to use the fence posts, as his favourite tree got felled by the farmer (it had seen better days and was about to fall over it's self, if not helped), he is there most days as I come down the drive but this is the first time I have managed a shot of him.

It has taken a while for our resident woodpeckers to get used to their new feeding station, (re-arranged due to the position of the winter sun), but as you can see they are not doing too badly, this was captured through the lounge window while relaxing on the sofa (that's me relaxing not the woodpecker LOL), we have two males and one female feeding daily.

Macclesfield Town Football Club is almost in walking distance of our wood and we try and attend every home match, when possible, we beat Salisbury City 1-0 yesterday which has put us 14th in the league table after a bad start due to injuries, suspensions and the team needing to gel and we are also through to the 3rd round of the F.A. Cup were we have drawn Sheffield Wednesday at home, hopefully the home advantage will be in our favour (you have to be hard to come to Macclesfield!!)here are the lads in warm up and greeting the opposition and also me with the Assistant Manager Efe Sodje.
