Thursday 21 June 2012: Sing A Song Of Sixpence ...
In yesterdays blip of the Green Woodpecker I mentioned that there was a Song Thrush that first grabbed my attention. It was blasting out its most wonderful song from atop the old dead Oak tree outside our hedgerow.
As you can see he popped into the garden to investigate this morning. It is a simply stunning bird, and a rare visitor to the garden these days. The cold winter the year before last dragged them in, but views like this are fleeting now.
We had two Magpie fledglings in the garden being fed by the parents. Now that is something that looked very long. Magpie fledglings are not far off adult size, and it reminded me of watching a big tattooed man feeding a baby .. wrong but cute looking all at the same time!
This all means the U is for ... AlphaPonty blip is delayed for another day!
I have put a few vids up on YouTube from the weekend, if you want to have a look click the links below.
