Sheer coincidence LF. We were talking about bird food a few days ago and she sent me an email

I had to laugh. Yesterday, GI Joe the squirrel launched an assault on the birdcage...


'what's this? I smell grub...'

'but - how do I get in...'

 'I'll try this first...'

'nope, maybe this way....'

'hmmm...maybe there's a door somewhere underneath...'

'oh b&&**r....'

LF - my sister gets hers from there, but you can get them direct from the maker even cheaper. £22.95 for 20 kg

Not bad here Dove. Not as wet as they said it would be today, about 5 or 6 degrees,  and we didn't have the wind we had yesterday. No jokes now... 

Think tomorrow's to be ok before more rain, wind and sleet comes along on Thursday  

Are you getting more frost tonight?

Ponies are always greedy little b*****s. Starvation rations needed for them or they get laminitic. We always had to keep them on bare ground during spring and summer. The competition ones were trickier than the riding school ones - especially if they were part Welsh A. They live on fresh air

Good work Gertie. Bet you're really pleased with the result.  

We're always amazed at work when people seem incapable of even sewing on a button. Everyone - of either sex - should be able to do it.

Glad you're ok Bushman. I was concerned you were unwell again. Nice to have you back

Nothing surprises me any more about our 'friends'across the pond pansyface.

If they'd just keep their daft ideas over there it would be fine...

I combine a good quality no mess robin/finch/tit mix with extra sunflower hearts for feeders and the table. Usually Chapelwood  ( from the garden centre) or even the one stocked by Asda, which has been great. I also use suet treats and mealworms scattered among the border with some of the mix, which the blackies like, and it encourages them to forage about in there. 

Bumblefoot on Chaffinch

I wonder if that's why I've seen no chaffinches in this garden since moving here a couple of years ago, whereas my garden round the corner (for 16 years)  was chaffinch central. Couldn't move for 'em round there.

Re spelling David - it's ok, it's not a hanging offence...yet  

It can be funny hearing people trying to pronounce some of our Scottish place names though, even though it's understandable!  

One of the most common is Strathaven - pronounced Strayven, and not as it's spelled. Milngavie is another -  pronounced 'Millguy' - as in Fawkes
