A series of images depicting a male black bird who frequents my garden taking a bath.

Thank you for all your wonderful and thoughtful comments with a special mention going to Netta1234 for her User Award

Well my visitors head off home today, it has been great having them around for the long weekend. The bungalow will certainly be much quieter, which in some ways is rather sad.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead.

Regards as always Nathan
