Green and Tense


I was in Shikabe on a grey humid summer afternoon watching the Japanese Green Pigeons.................



I'm updating this blog whilst the very tense end to the first Ashes test goes on in the background. If I ignore it and switch the sound off, wickets will fall. It worked twice so far but Australia still edging towards the total.

If England lose after having Australia at 117/9 in the first innings I will not be happy.



Not a vintage day for photos, too overcast and the sea was too calm meaning no splashes when they came down to the rocks..............





Back to the torture of the cricket then............my last 5 minutes of radio silence didn't get a wicket...............


Thanks for clicking this link.......

  2. I got live streaming going just in time to see Agar walking off the field for 98, then I listened to the radio for three balls to hear the last wicket go. Congrats on modern technology. I guess without it, we wouldn't be blogging. Nice pictures, I'm yet to see a green pigeon.

    1. The streaming (on that link I sent you) is usually OK but it has an annoying tendency to black out every once in a while, a quick refresh sorts it out but I missed a wicket one time. The BBC's radio coverage is OK though but for really close tense periods of the game I just have to watch it ...........
