Good evening folks,
Not the best day I ever had at the hide, light not up to a lot and
all my visitors just flashed in and out.
The highlight is this first ever Jay. I have never been this fortunate before.
I set this perch up a week ago hoping to entice this fellow in, and it worked.
Now the key is to keep him interested.
Thanks for looking and for the C&C's on my Bank vole.
Very much appreciated indeed.
Colin
