Strange Bed Fellows................

By Mollycat
............the squirrel and the thrush are youngsters. The thrush arrived first, didn't move just stood with its beak wide open. Then the squirrel turned up and still the thrush didn't move. Eventually bored the squirrel pushed off. The thrush didn't move for nearly an hour, until a male blackbird mobbed him. According to a neighbour it now seems we've three albinos in the ground........

Many thanks for your views and comments on yesterdays picture. Especially to Jos, Ivor, Mile, Lin and Kate for their valued UA's and Malcolm (SaltireBlue) for honouring me with his GEA.

Installing the new PC this morning, so hopefully will catch up later in the day.

Incredible… never seen an albino squirrel.
You sure do get some stuff turning up…I think Countryfile should do a feature.

This is great on at least two counts - the albino squirrel and the close encounter with the young thrush.
THIS might interest you.

Would have doubted the truth of it If I hadnt seen the shot !
