Starlings not migrating

Posted: 16/12/2016 at 12:35

We're in Norfolk and they do seem to be quite nomadic - some years we have quite a few nesting here in the summer and other years only one or two if any.  In the winter they all seem to move to the reedbeds around the Broads.

Maybe you'll have to turn your place back into a quarry Nut?

Hazel, I'm sure she'll appreciate your good wishes, and those from everyone else - I've passed them on and Hosta's hugs too.  


She's always been fond of tomatoes ... when she was about ten months old and in her pram I left her outside the village shop where the shopkeeper and I could see her (as we did back in those days) ... at the foot end of the pram was a bag of lovely ripe little tomatoes fresh from a friend's garden ... when I went back to the pram she'd eaten half of them ... boy were there repercussions later in the day   Sorry Wonky ... probably too much info

That will explain the ones on my link then Pansy - it's an old (Roman/mediaeval) limestone quarry.

Have just spoken to Wonky - it's proper flu!!!  Aching all over and shivering cold then hot and sweaty in turns ... bless her.  Stepwomble and partner are arriving tomorrow - I've told her to send out for pizzas.  ((hugs)) Wonky, if you're well enough to look in.

Deeply disappointing

Good morning all 


Lovely photo Pat 


I think awful things happen all the time, but we notice it more at some times of year. When it's darker and not as active outside I think we become more introspective. Traditionally it's been a time for wrapping ourselves in something warm, sitting around the fire to tell tales and pondering on the meaning of life. 


That being said, I think there are statistics that show that the frail are more likely to die in the winter. 


As DD says, make the best of every moment
