Almost Done

By BillyGoatGruff  
Some weeks ago this chap frequented our garden a few times.

We reckoned he was looking to lay down his head for good.

Haven't seen him since I shot this....

Got to be the oldest, ugliest bird I have ever seen.

Have a great weekend people, I'm off to the pub! Wink

Thanks for dropping in.

Poor old thing! Reckon you got a shot of him just in time! Sure someone will make comments about you being lucky if this is the oldest and ugliest bird you've ever seen, but I'll leave them to someone else Smile
