feeding the birds

Posted: 13/08/2016 at 21:56

I feed in the winter. In the summer the birds eat all my currants, blueberries, strawberries, cherries, mirabelles, grapes. Now there are beak peck holes in the unripe peaches. Could that be because I'm not feeding them?!


The bird population has increased here, especially tits and blackbirds, but 20 years ago there used to be goldfinches - haven't seen one for years. Haven't seen dead baby birds either.

I loved the rowing too and the sailing. Saw Andy as well. Now need to cook dinner.

Fairygirl said "BL - do you have Sky or something similar? They're always showing the programmes on the Horse and Country channel that he did from his yard, and all the exhibitions and training events etc. They're fabulous"


I used to have Horse and Country when I had my own Sky Card but we now have OH's card and it doesn't work any more.


I'm afraid I really like your old kitchen, apart from the pine ceiling. Cupboards look like oak, not pine. Looks just like my kitchen, warm looking, farmhousey. What was the matter with it?

Feel a bit of a twit  I said "Allegro" instead of "Valegro" on page 2. Must be because of having a piano playing OH.

Talking of stumperies, we went to the one at Arundel Castle, Sussex in 2014. It had the typical shady section with Hostas etc, but also had a sunny bit with huge Echiums.

What is your weather like?

Sun and 28° so far. Been out looking for electric fence posts for daughter's horse. The whole world is also in Dordogne. Many of them bringing their camping cars and caravans.

I love Carl Hester too, lovely, generous man. Watched all the Dressage on the red button yesterday. Superb. Hope Charlotte and Allegro do well in the individual Free Style on Monday. I prefer Peter Storr's commentary to Ian Stark's, but Peter is a dressage rider whereas Ian is an eventer.

Yes Fairy, love Carl Hester. He seems a lovely person. I used to read his articles when I used to get Horse and Rider magazine.

Yesterday was 10° in the morning and 25° in the afternoon. From what Dove said on Forkers thread it was warmer near Norwich than it was here in Dordogne! But we should be in for some hot weather, not really looking forward to it. Still need rain. Just not on the 20th when I'm having a charity BBQ.
