Hi all, was just finishing off in the garden when a bright yellow bird landed near me and started pecking at a few weeds.  Pretty sure it's an escaped canary so hope it finds it's way home or it probably won't last long. image

I managed to get back into the house to find my camera without scaring it off but just as I was about to take a photo it flew up onto next door's roof, so this is all I could get:



A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Sure looks like a Canary, BTG...and could very well end up a tasty meal for a Sparrowhawk if it's not too careful.

    hope it survives image but at least it got to have a bit of freedom and fly free as it should :/
