I'm not hanging around here!

By Holmewood
Thank you so much for the votes and comments on my last upload. Special thanks to Dave (HobbitDave), Jo (jocas), Dave (ugly), Ivor (capto), Fred (Badgerfred), Mike (Mike_Smith), Ju (JuBarney), Lillian, Jeff (Kojack) and Lin (sweetpea62) for your smashing User Awards.

We went up to the hide today and had another visit from the juvenile GSW - I hope you are not getting fed up with seeing him. The Chaffinch was definitely off pretty quickly. Hope you like it.

Have a great evening.

Cathy and Stan

An aerial ballet, Cathy.

Wow delightful Cathy such a good feeling it gives me to see your birds. I was woken up last night and I thought it was my cat with something in distress in its mouth. Turned out to be an Owl on a post in the garden. It woke me up later on that evening. It was lovely to see but hope this does not happen every night! Debs.
