Bank Holiday Blues.




Above - A pair of Goldfinches feeding on Dandies in amongst our poppies looked very nice this morning.




Mmmm...this is new, what is it?



I'm not sure what they are but they smell good...

This weekend we have just sat around the garden and the local beach really, doing very little indeed. Bunty has taken a shine to Jane's new patio tomato greenhouse for some reason?

Wise man once say 'Gambian Birds are for Christmas but Blyth Birds are for life'.

Its a struggle to get back to normality following a trip abroad but there comes a time when you've got no choice but to stare at endless craas and Woodpigeons.....sadly.

Stiff upper lip and all that...

Just been enjoying all your lovely photos - particularly the ones of your gold finches... they don't hang around for long here so you were lucky to get the photos!

Will visit again soon - Miranda

BB - But. Gambian Birds ARE holiday birds. China's Sibes are often vagrants to us, such as Rubythroats, Pallas's, Little Bunts etc etc so every day was like a dream scene on a Holy Island October! Sob...

Hi Miranda, thanks for your comments....

Beautiful pictures of flowers and birds. Bunty is a very cute little doggy.
