Yesterday I posted a picture of a blue cockerel which just stood out in Trafalgar Square in London. Now that I have managed to look at some more of the pictures I took last weekend, I have this one which shows him in his full glory. He took a great place in the Guardian here when Boris unveiled him on the 4th plinth. There were the obvious innuendoes in most of the papers to be honest but this was my favourite.
Take a listen to Boris Johnson’s unveiling speech. Its brilliant.

having spent a fantastic weekend in London & am working through the pictures, I thought I’d share this initially. I’m trying to understand what an earth a blue cockerel was doing in Trafalgar Square. It sort of stands out next to Nelson’s Column.
Any one have any ideas. I need to Google it when I have time. This will have to do for now. I’ll update once I find out.
A few months back I posted some pictures of Burrowbridge. You will probably heard of this place. Its been on the news over here every day now for a month virtually. The floods continue to get worse & the entire area is now underwater. Living so close, I can visit in less than 10 minutes, but I can never begin to understand how the local residents are feeling. Their entire lives are upside down & will be for months to come as the authorities try & deal with what is becoming a nightmare for the area. I visited a couple of days ago to see for myself again the amount of water that has been added to the levels & its now one large lake. This picture should be one of rolling green fields. All there is now is water.
The rainbow appeared just as I was taking this shot. Its the one thing that makes the area look better at the moment.
Yesterdays shot was of a fairly tranquil Lyme Regis Bay. A week later all hell had broken loose. Sky news were reporting from the beach so I decided to take a look for myself. It was blowing a gale & sitting down was the best way to take a picture. Standing up was not really an option especially if you wanted something in focus. Many of the shots yesterday were not!!
