Needless to say, I barely got out at all, but in a quick half hour dry interlude, I made a visit to the Greenhouse Grounds, where as well as seeing one of the KESTREL pair, and a LITTLE OWL sitting on the Greenhouse guttering, I recorded the first recently fledged SONGTHRUSH of the year, good to see they have produced youngsters.
Whilst stuck indoors, I kept an eye on the garden feeders, and was cheered by this handsome male BULLFINCH that turned up to feed on the various weeds on my lawn, a good reason not to join the masses and mow the lawn every Sunday!
Posts to the old Blog may become a bit sporadic over the next week or so. My elderly father was admitted to hospital today, and it seems he is coming to the end of his days, i'll do well to emulate his enjoyment for life, a real good bloke :-) it's him I can thank for my perseverance and dogged determination, these are the qualities he has passed on to me :-)
|Male Bullfinch - stunner!|
|Bullfinch - shame the light was so dire!|
