HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 31/12/2014 at 14:41

I put the following on the wrong thread

The blackbirds are chasing the collared doves, the collared doves are looking embarrassed.  The goldfinches are on the feeders, the Gt Tits are trying to drive them off, the Blue Tits have given up and are hopping about in the ash trees looking for spiders etc and the robin is perched on the top of one of the trees shouting at the lot of them. It's lovely out there

Update to above:  The collared doves have moved onto the roof opposite and are behaving as if it's St Valentine's Day   Is Spring here?

Happy new Year

I tried to sign up. was asked for my password. No idea (as usual) so requested another and couldn't make it go. I'll have another try before the day........

I've just done that and it worked  

I thought I'd register early 'cos the site was all over the place last year wasn't it?

Just to be pedantically accurate this is now Hesperantha coccinea.

Thanks - I stand a chance of being able to remember that one rather than having to put Kaffir Lily into Google

Every year my birds hide for the duration of the RSPB Garden Bird Watch - they're really ornery creatures

Hello Mark

It looks to me like Schizostylis coccinea, aka the Kaffir Lily, a native of S. Africa - usually flowers in the late autumn - but it's been a funny old year
