They’ve just started coming to the feeders I put out weeks ago. I’d sited lots of feeders crammed with sunflower seeds... not the black ones they have to work on to reach the sunflower hearts, but the hearts themselves. Convenience food for birds.

Today there were robins, blue tits, marsh tits and a magnificent, most handsome great tit. Reflecting on the situation, I said to the great tit...

“Thanks a bunch mate, why couldn’t you have come a couple of weeks ago on RSPB bird count weekend?”

I can’t repeat what he said in reply, but Twitter wouldn’t allow it!

    ooops ... commented on the wrong one. I meant this for the trip to Spain :-) I can assure you, I didn't touch the cooking sherry! 😁

    It’s allowed... and why waste the sherry on cooking?

    (Great that you’re back, Frenchie, and on sparkling, if alcohol induced, form.)
