...........................................Chirpy chirpy cheep cheep
When I retired to bed on Thursday night after listening(yes I do hear them) to your blogs,
I decided that I was going to treat myself to a lazy day .Unfortunately I arose at the unearthly hour of 9.15 am,yes 9.15 am,However I decided to keep my promise to myself and after a cuppa and a slice of toast I ventured in to the garden and sat down with Badger by my side in the glorious sunshine.
Being a creature of habit I always have to be doing something and so I decided to watch the cherries ripen on the tree(yes they grow on trees,not in the supermarket).
This I decided was quite strenuous and so I got the wife to turn the sunlounger around for me
so that I could watch the bird famillies.
First of all I spot Mr& Mrs Robin Bird normally it would only be Mr Robin Bird but I assume he was allowing her a treat in the morning sunshine.They were still around when Woody Pigeon ,with his big body,short legs,small head and pointed wings descends on to the dead pear tree next door.He gives out a song and is then joined by the rest of the Woody familly who promply descend on to the feeding station on our lawn,After some neck biting,feather pulling and much squauking they settle down to dine.The parent Woody's then gave the young master Woody a lesson on how to feed himself.This was all very fascinating.I could see Badger asleep dreaming about pigeon pie!
All of a sudden down dive the Ferrell's(pigeons) scattering the Woody familly in all directions.
The Ferrell familly devour almost all of what was in the bird feeder before scarpering
Next the Great Tittilators descend in there numbers to peck up all the bird seeds that the Woody's and Ferrell's have scattered amongst the grass from the bird feeders.The Tittilators are a picture in their own right with beautiful bluey/yellow colourings.
Then guess who arrives,'the ole cock Sparrers',They go straight for the sunflower seeds ,they are not greedy birds,just help themselves to what they want and go and have a rest in the bushes.
Naughty Maggie Pie arrives but today she decides not to hang around and off she goes.
It is now half past midday and time to go up the road to look after our nephew and nieces British Bulldogs,Pearl and Ernie,both real characters.for an hour or so.It is so hot they just want to lie in the shade under a big apple tree the garden and so do I.
Back home me and my mate Badger return out into the garden to watch some more birds(no,no feathered),
Little Jenny Wren keeps popping in and out of the flora and fauna to grab a bight to eat,
Baby Woody appears to be asleep on the corner of the lawn.
All of a sudden is brightly coloured Chaf Finch strolling beside us on the terrace with not a care in the world.
Then there arrives Mr & Mrs (I'll 'ave ee)Blackbird.They always go straight for the fat balls,have a look for some worms,do a bit of sunbathing and then go back home to the trees in a neighbours garden
Whilst all this has been going on the bees have been buzzing ,butterflies flaping there graceful wings,LadyBird kept coming to me and the ants have been getting where ants get to.
It is my world and God bless them it is their world too.
