My apologies that I forgot to mention the area where we have seen the beautiful but unwelcome heron. We are in Nerja campo. However when we last had a visit a few years ago it visited many ponds around this area and we lost all but 2 fish. Sadly we have not seen any of our fish recently but hope that may be due to the winter cold. Thank you for the knowledgeable advice from a Digame reader. What a great site this is. Happy Christmas



Stolen Items

The following items were stolen from my apartment early Tuesday morning whilst I was asleep.  It is a long shot that I ever get any or all of them back but wanted to try

A silver solitaire square ring

Very small ceramic box for jewelry white with a red ribbon effect

3 House keys attached to an Angel shaped key ring (where is that Angel ?)

2 Car keys attached to a blue and black coloured alarm

Small black purse with money in and cards which have been cancelled

If anyone knows where these items are or you have

purchased or found them please contact me.  Thank you.

Happy Christmas everyone and stay safe !!

What’s on-Trip to Gibraltar

The Phoenix Club are off on their next shopping trip to Gibraltar on Friday the 6th January and we have a few seats still available.
We have pick ups at at the A1 Garden Centre, Torre del Mar bus station and finally at Algarrobo Lidl at 08.30.  The bus is parked in Morrisons car park and we leave Gibraltar at 16.30.  Due to visa restrictions on entering Gibraltar, please advise if you are a non EU citizen when you book.  Also it is important to remember to bring with you your EHIC card, just in case, and passports are essential.  On the way to Gibraltar we stop to spend a penny and for coffee.

We would greatly appreciate if payment was made before the journey.

The price?  €12pp includes a €1 gratuity for the driver.  Children under 12 can join us for 1/2 price.   Still the best value on the coast!
Early booking is recommended if you like a particular place, as seat numbers are allocated on a first come, first served basis.  Plenty to see in Gibraltar apart from the shopping!

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 4 weeks later.

Anyone selling anything must include the make and model number of the item.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in  JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
