Wordless Manky

Manky is probably the most photographed blue tit in the world, ever.  But hey, at least he/she/it's cute! (I'm experimenting with a new (to me, at the very least!) feature.  You can click on a photo to view it in a 'carousel' where you should be able to comment and 'like' each photo individually.  Well,...
