I dreamt last night that I had a huge pond and there were 5 Dwarf Hippopotamus in there. Two guys were busy removing them and insisted they were Capybara and the frogs were jumping 6 feet into the trees above to get out of the way. In reality my pond is small and there's just frogs and newts in there Smile

Phew, I'm so relieved. It's nearly dark but I've just seen two blackbirds on the lawn looking for food. I haven't seen them for at least a month and was wondering where they'd got to. It's lovely to see them back. Must put down some extra food for them tomorrow. Still lots of birds around in the garden, but all the weeds have been dug up and the leaves are finally falling off the trees. I don't like these early dark nights though but it's turned quite a bit colder today so perhaps we'll finally get some winter and everything can get back to normal. I do feel sorry for all the wildlife when the weather goes out of kilter like this.

We had a jackrabbit in the garden yesterday, they eat the birdseed also, and it was almost all white already. It looked like somebody with hair dyed blond and the roots showing their natural colour.Grin Sold and shipped my telephoto lens on the weekend and I'm waiting impatiently for the Canon 70-200mm f4L; I have a brush and a can of black paint ready and waiting.Wink

Well here I am in deepest, darkest east London and I've just had a huge flock of seagulls fly over the garden squawking, followed immediately by about a dozen geese going in the opposite direction cackling away, and earlier in the day a couple of green parakeets were hanging around. Talk about confusing.
It's been a lovely day today and all the bird feeders have been cleaned or replaced. My hands reek of bleach and the smell'll hang around for a few days now. At least they've had a good disinfect too. Smile

We've had a lovely sunny afternoon - I was surprised to see a Red Admiral flutter past the window (they are determined not to hibernate this year!).

I've also got several families of Long Tailed Tits (my favourites) visiting my peanut feeders. The only problem is they visit first thing in the morning and last thing in the afternoon (too dark to take photos!). :l

I found this one crawling on the outside of the kitchen window this morning:-

I moved it to a kafir lily hoping it would slow down a little! The light was awful, so it's only a record shot - I know it's a weevil, but it's Red! Anyone know which one it is?

Okay, forget I asked!!

'Google' has presented me with this if you are interested. It's an Apion frumentarium !

Quite a good looking chap/chapess though Smile

I've not a clue what's going on in my garden - I've not been out there this weekend yet. Maybe I'll take a look shortly!

I'm now clearing up old pots and planting some bulbs I got on the cheap the other day. Buried in one of the pots was a hen's egg Smile

What a sweet photo Karen. I don't know why, but these little weevils are so cute.
CarolG takes some lovely pictures of weevils in her part of the world and we call them Clangers. Smile

My garden birds are getting so flamin' fussy - (like my cat(s)). Lovely new feeders and nice clean other feeders!!! Well, you'd think they'd been laced with poison the way the birds've abandoned them. Still, I expect when they're starving they'll deign to come down again. Ingrates!!! Grin

Very misty this morning. I was going to start clearing all the leaves off of the lawn but I might let some more drop off and do it one nice sunny day instead.

My cat Poppy sniffing out the mice who live in the scruffy corner of my garden left for such creatures and insects.

It's only November and it's Scotland but I've just noticed the first signs of spring bulbs appearing in my garden. I can't remember them ever being this early before. I hope all this climate change stuff doesn't mean I'll be cutting the grass all year round.

I think I'd be tempted to throw some leaves over those shoots - I saw the 5 day weather forecast earlier, it says that Scotland is in for heavy snow by the end of next week!
