My OH has pins in his ankle from a sledging accident. They had him in a room down to his skimpies in an airport in Germany.
However, here I have my own personal springwatch.
We started with the two mallards. OH wants to call them ayupmi duck and corlova duck.
That was followed with a pair of dunnocks. She was fluffed up and feather fluttering. He was pecking at the backside. Apparently this is to induce her to expel the previous lovers sperm so he has more chance of fathering babies. This went on for some time.
Now there are two hedgehogs on the patio. The larger one seems to have a dislike of the smaller one. Bit of argy bargy, and a small turf war going on over the food on the patio.
We have voles that are copying the squirrels and climbing. There was one in the pergola amongst the wisteria at head height. OH was talking to it. Its a good job the neighbours can't see.
Oh well, it will soon be time for bed. More digging tomorrow.
