No work today, and no patch visit, I'm bogged down with a rotten cold! 

I tried a bit of garden bird watching throughout the day, but the SPARROWHAWK really has got the garden pinned down  :-(  Its frequent and failed attacks are keeping everything away from the feeders, apart from a few brave and fleet winged BLUE and GREAT TITS, but at one point I was visit by a few SISKIN briefly, 6 came in together, nice to see them  :-)

I heard the LITTLE OWL calling from the Small Holding more than once this afternoon,  but that was about it for the day.............and I'm out of photographs again  :-(

Things can only improve from this point on  :-)

Hope you get better soon (I myself had a rotten cold earlier in the month). Sparrowhawks can be a real menace around feeding stations can't they :-(

Hope you feel much better soon Warren sending lots of healing hugs but wearing a gas mask so you don't pass it on to me ;-) Hope the Sparrowhawk moves on and gives them and you a break!

Take care and be patient mate. After joining Ebird, I thought about you and hoped you are punching all your info in there. They are so valuable!

Thanks for your sympathies guys - well, all except Mr Heath :-)

I'll be out and about soon as.

Anyway, i'll be finishing work for good next Thursday, so I can make up for lost time, i'll also add a few new innovations to my patch watching, just to keep things interesting :-)
