    I thought with the virus overtaking our lives I would start this thread to lighten the mood and give us something else to share .
    My hobby is not to everyone's taste . I collect reborn dolls .
    I first started 25 years ago when I got my first one , over the years I have collected 14 .
    My most recent ones are full body silicone babies , I have rooted the hair and eyelashes . I just enjoy buying clothes and dressing them . This is Rebeccah she is full body silicone she be bathed, I rooted her hair and eyelashes took me 14 hours to do over two days .

    Mine is birding. I'm still hoping to get out a bit as the reserve I visit is hardly known by the locals so I have perfect solitude Shelduck%201%20-%2012.01.2018%20-%20Isley%20Marsh.jpg Great%20White%20Egret%20-%20Ham%20Wall%20-%2025.10.2016.jpg.jpg GS%20Woodpecker%203%20%20(juvenile)%20-%2007.06.2017.jpg

    Welshman, I have a photo of a Mallard almost identical to yours, taken at Slimbridge. I actually did a double take, looking at yours.

    Hobbies for me? Sailing, travel, gardening and making ridiculous things involving a sewing machine. :)

    Well if it's identical to mine then it's a shoveler not a mallard.

    It's been a long time since I've been to Slimbridge and next weekend we were due to be going on a birding holiday to Minsmere with a call in on the way. Looks like CV has scuppered that happening. Still on the plus side the sand martin's are returning and they don't care about the pandemic.
