Hello everyone.

They get quite excited here in Cornwall when a red kite is spotted. I went to London  in May, for a rare treat, to see 'War Horse'. We stayed over night with some friends near Oxford and I was amazed to see lots of red kites . Apparently they were almost extinct in Britain just over twenty years ago. Impressive birds.

Good morning all, Hope all the holiday makers enjoy themselves. Looking forward to Beck's tales.

I'm a bit worried in case Mrs. Geoff has taken 'Fifty Shades of Grey' as her holiday reading. We might never see him again.

Lovely photo, Figrat. Life is too short to dust down cobwebs.

Also Gary's photos are great. I meant to get some heleniums last year but definitely will after seeing these photos.

Hello  Auntie Betty, I always thought it was an old wives tale about bats getting tangles in your hair. I hope my sister-in-law doesn't hear about your experience as she was always terrified that this would happen to her.

I think any encounter with wildlife makes your day.

I have posted about my chickens before,Flo. I have ten and one cockerel. I have a lot of trouble with foxes and even though the fox can't get in where they are in the photo they still fly over the gate. I could clip their wings but they wouldn't get up on the perch then.

What's the weather like in your area?

Glad you are feeling a bit better Maud and Frank also.

Lovely here in Cornwall. You've got sewage in the sea , Maud. We've got warnings about Portugese Man of War. Yikes.

I can't see that kitten moving out Flo. You will miss him when he goes.

There's a song that goes 'You're my favourite waste of time' and I think that applies to animals too. I could spend ages watching my chickens. They've all got different personalities.  the life of chickens and pigs in little cages doesn't bear thinking about.

Hope Pam and Becks as well as Jess enjoy their holidays.

Jess seems very like my grandaughter. Her parents have given up telling her too far ahead about treats, holidays etc. as she drives them mad. Has she been on a plane before, Becks?

Yes,Kate, the owner was devasted and offered to pay for any vet's bills if needed.

Joys of keeping animals but I wouldn't be without them.

Where's Jean? I bet she has gone to the book shop.

Yesterday was a bit traumatic. I took my German Shepherd to the vets as he had a sore bit under his tail about the size of a ten pence. The vet said he thought it was an auto-immune condition that only affects this breed and the only drug, which isn't guaranteed to work, cost £500 a month, way beyond my means.  I came away with anti- biotics and steroids and a bill of £152.

 We used to have a vet near us who worked out of a shed in his garden and the rates were so reasonable. We queued up in cars outside and we trusted him. He never charged for wild animals or very small children's pets.

The black and white dog is my daughters and he was on a lead last night when he was attacked by a staffie. It took the owner and three others to get him off. He's not too badly hurt but has come over to me today while my daughter is at work as he was very frightened. So altogether yesterday was not a good dog day.
