This little fellow is a real gardener's friend and appears whenever either of us goes out to do a bit of work. I think he's a young parent bird as he gathers quantities of insects in his beak and flies off with them, returning to search for more. I was sitting not three feet away from him when I took this photo - he seems to know we would do him no harm.
This is one of our bluetit babies tucking in to the fat balls. It was just above my head and taken from the same position as the robin photo.
The allotment is growing slowly. I thought I would have finished it by now, but each day other things have pressed in and taken priority. Of the two strips I need to finish it, one is almost complete and then there will be just one more to do. An uninterrupted day could see it done.
................and this is a mistake!!! I must find out how to delete photos from my post!
Finally, here is a shot of our daft old cat sharing my husband's choc ice! We have never given him icecream but the other evening when my husband settled down to eat one the cat went mad for it, and now miaows hopefully for another helping if none is forthcoming. If you look carefully I think you can see his tongue in mid-lick. It probably wouldn't be the ideal treatment for a young cat, but ours is very old and definitely at the age when 'a little of what you fancy does you good'.
