For one reason or another, I've not been out and about much over the last few days.
The Nuthatch has been putting in one or two appearances in the garden; I shall have to re-site the peanut feeder as it's always in the shade of the trees.
This morning my Grandson and I were up at 5.00 a.m. I was very impressed that J woke up and got out of bed when hearing the alarm - and no prompting! We were at school by 6.00 a.m. as today it's the year trip to France. I'm to pick him up at the school at 10.00 p.m. ish! I shall be setting my mobile phone's alarm - just in case!
Had a wander around Bushy Park this afternoon. Dull day weather wise and very windy.
Mothers and children were feeding the birds bread as usual, and this Jackdaw had his share!
Grey Herons seemed to predominate in terms of birds today. This one, standing on the "No Fishing" signpost (it hasn't learned to read yet!), managed to be tipped off balance by a gust of wind.
He regained his balance and continued to preen.
In the Woodlands Gardens, my first sighting of a Pied Wagtail youngster on the bank. He flew over to the other side and perched - too far away for more than a record shot.
Now I just need to keep going until I go off to collect the young traveller later this evening.
