Thank you so much for the votes and comments on my last upload. Special thanks to Dave (HobbitDave), Jo (jocas), Len (Len1950), John (J_Caswell), Peter (Mollycat), Ian (chensuriashi), Dave (ugly), Ivor (capto), Carol (canoncarol), Fred (Badgerfred), Bob (bobpaige1), Jeff (kojack) and Lavina (fificat100) for your smashing User Awards.

We went up to the hide today and I was so pleased to catch these two Chaffinches. It took ages for the male to get on the perch and the female (Version 1) was close but not close enough, The second version is the reason why I am late uploading. My sister made me this clock and I was putting it up outside. The middle one is me on my horse Scout and the top one is Jozef jumping Scout and the rest are all the animals that I have had over the years. You might be able to pick out Stan, Boris and Gnasher. She is so clever. Hope you like them.

Have a great evening.

Cathy and Stan.

Original and very well thought out present for you.
The pictures are good too.
(lots of our Chaffinches have the 'club foot' type problems).
