Another photo from the family archives. Me and my mother (Clare Brelstaff) in a park in Barrow-in-Furness in December 1959. We lived in Barrow from 1959 to 1962, before we moved to my father's home town of Guisborough.
I had assumed that my first recorded sighting of a muscovy duck (Cairina moschata) was this one from 2004. However, if you look in the background of the above photo you will see that my first sighting must have been 45 years earlier.
