First of all, apologies for the lack of posts recently, I've had the dreaded lurgy since just after Christmas and am finally feeling a bit better. This is my 100th post, my first ever posting was on the 19th of January 2008 so I guess that means I've averaged a post once every 3.65 days (almost) (-:
Not as good as some and better than others! As I haven't been able to get out at all so far in 2009 I thought I'd post some birds that I've been able to photograph from the warmth of my house.
This male Blackcap starred in a recent post. He's looking pretty plump on a diet of suet, apples and cheese!This very alert male House Sparrow (or Sprog as we call them) is sitting in the same Strawberry Tree (Arbutus unedo) as the Blackcap. I think he's keeping an eye on our new kitten Poppy.The male Blackbirds are already full of testosterone it seems. I've had up to five in the garden all chasing eachother. I think this is one of those that has had to sit on the sidelines to wait his turn at the raisins, apples, cheese and suet!So far my year list is a measly 20 species! I've never had such a poor start to the year. I hope to rectify that in the next few weeks though! (-:
