    We are absolutely inundated with ring necked parakeets at the moment - an average of twenty at a time but our highest count is forty-one! Fortunately, the smaller birds are not worried by them and they happily share the many feeders in the garden image

    Hefty, all you need to do to make the link clickable is to do one space after inserting the link.

    pictures are lovely.

    That doesn't work in this case Lyn.  The Facebook link copied from the address bar in a browser contains odd characters which screw things up.
