Lines and Birds
The starlings were congregating on the telegraph wire which is opposite our house. This was my morning view through the bedroom window.
The bird feeder , which ian repositioned on sunday has not had any visitors until today. The first feeders were a flock of starlings , followed by blue tits , coal tits and a robin. At last they have found their way.
My daughter Claire arrived this afternoon , with an hour's delay on one train and a train taken out of service , she was only an hour late arriving.
Her brother came over to see her and it has been a very loud and lively afternoon/early evening with their very animated conversation . Ella, my Granddaughter has a bad cold and her mother has a throat infection, so they couldn't come along as I am auto immune and cannot risk picking up an infection . That was of course, a disappointment.
I forgot to mention yesterday that I took another step in my journey - I have begun driving again. My Freelander is a big car but I handled it with ease. Phew . I havent driven since April, so I'm pleased all was okay.
It has been very rainy today and it's the third day I havent ventured into the garden . Tomorrow I will make amends.
