Hmm - I didn't know that. Never had a problem here, but I can imagine that could happen.
Will have to look into this further - we gave up on the wire feeders because of their reputation for spreading disease, and of course, stringing up a prepared ball is so much easier.
Getting rather complicated - perhaps it's best to just not feed them at all or use bird tables....
thank-you for your comment. Presumably the church was designed to impress the natives as they approach - and to demonstrate how puny the menhir / old religion was - so this time the obvious angle was, well, quite appropriate...
Anne thank-you for comment. I debated (with myself, of course, and not too loudly ) whether or not to put in the post on the left. My original crop did not include it, maybe I should have stuck with it!
Excellent. I love the shot - it's true that the lighthouse is 'overexposed' and it would be nice if that could be rectified, but I do wonder if doing so would ruin the dream-like effect. Mods so far don't 'do it for me' whereas this does. All subjective?
