    I know what you mean pansyface, but those two juveniles have been great fun to watch this year. 

    The pond's so tiny, it's more like a plunge pool for them image

  • watching birds especially fledglings are a joy anytime, water makes it more so.

    ...except that these little b*ggers will grow up to be noisy, messy songbird predators.  I'm quite happy - indeed thrilled - to see a sparrowhawk/kestrel/harrier taking an adult bird but I do draw the line at magpies ransacking a nest.

    (I'd now duck to avoid the epected flack but I'm off to do some cooking...)

    Me too Steve, I can't bear to see them fighting over baby birds and ripping them in half. I have to chase them away here.

    I don't care for magpies normally but those two have made me laugh this year. Especially when one slid down the neighbour's garage roof .... image image
