Never had Nits?? You must have gone to a very posh school Julia. They were a rite of passage at my school. Everyone had them !!TongueTongue
Super shot of the starlings. They really are the most attractive birds. Getting two on that perch is a great scoop.

I've had many a pupil with nits - unfortunately there are no nit nurses any more and teachers can no longer examine the hair - but in some cases you only need to stand still and watch !!!
So this brings back a few memories - great capture Julia SmileSmile

My girls came home with head lice second day of school this year, after we got them clear after they came home with head lice last day of school last year! This means that some child in their class is infested and the parents can't be bothered checking or treating it Sad

Lovely quality image Julia. Never had nits either. Have I missed out? TongueTongueTongue. So I will rename your title 'Needs more Brylcreem mate'. Grin
It's all in the detail, and very good it is indeed, great title well presented.
