    This is a delightfully frog-laden thread. Long may it last.

    That fledgling goldie is adorable philippa! You're very lucky to have them breeding nearby. I have a pair of goldies that have started to visit my garden - totally enthralled by them, especially their birdsong, which somehow reminds me of a dog's squeeky chew toy!

    They are certainly doing well Ecokid..........I have a feeling that we have pinched them from our NDN's as she says she hasn't seen them recentlyimage

    You're right.....they lift your life a little don't they ?

     Yes, they are sunflower hearts, which are sunflower seeds with the husks removed so no mess on the floor.

    I know that most people don't like seagulls but round here by the sea you can't avoid them. These two have been firm friends for at least 5 years and often come into the house to say hello.

    The benefits of making friends with these two are that they keep the other seagulls away from our garden and they don't attack us or our cats in the breeding season.

    We all walk happily down the road unharmed while the other neighbours all get dive bombed for months on end :-)

    They are real characters and love to splash in the water we leave out for them.

    Funnily enough I had one of those on my raspberries today tinatina, but buzzed off before I could get a picture. This warm weather has been great for butterflies - I saw a peacock and a common blue as well as many others in the garden today. Stunning. I need to keep the camera with me at all times. haha image
