It had been so long since I have sat in my hide, I decided to spend today at the Feed Station and see what was about. Not much really but a few 'Keepers' for the log and this one of a windswept and slightly backlit Blue Tit which I liked. Also had the thrill of seeing a pair of Roe Bucks in chase straight towards me, which I may show another time.
The best part of the morning though was seeing, something I have been after for ages now, and that was to find a Common Buzzards nest with the pair tending to it, so I can see lots of days out in the hide and watching. Job now is to find some road kill to put in the field.

Many thanks to those who commented on yesterdays upload of one of my cats

I would like to know why a Modurator has the right to remove part of somebody's comment, when they are asking a question and trying to give their views in a polite manner.
It goes against freedom of speech and in no way upset anybody.
In fact it was a meaningful and constructive point of view.
I say to all Modurators, please do not remove this as I would like others to read it and I would also like an answer as to why Annette's comment and thread were removed when so many hurtful comments against me have remained on Epz.
Thank you and also a big thank you to my supporters and comments on this image and to Ron for the User Award.
