A Song

There is a certain song that I recognise, the faint piercing notes can be quite a distance away but my ear always picks it up.  But it's not just my ears, it's a song that will always speak to my heart.  I try to whistle a few notes back, despite the fact that I have... Continue Reading →

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,...

Release

Release has obviously always been the plan.  I may sound like a bad bird-parent but release would mean having my sitting room back, a clean sitting room where I would be able to sit and knit or work on the computer without dodging poop and being pecked at (and that would also mean that you...

It’s a Manky Life

I can't believe that a month has passed since four of our blue tits fledged!  It's been a really busy month for me too and this post has been delayed too by an invasion of gremlins in my computer which meant that I haven't been able to process any photos to share either.  Ugh, backlog...

Bird Words

This is a follow-up to yesterday's wordless (mostly) post where I uploaded some of the photos of our baby blue tits from last week. My mind has been on the weather, following the emerging news stories from Mid Wales especially and reports from the flooded out Springwatch team.  They talk of severe 'summer' storms but...

More Breaking News

We think Rocky (unsurprisingly) and Birdie were the first out of the 'nest'.  Birdie suddenly seemed to put a sprint on and overtake his more developed siblings this last week. Sneaky has also flown now. Yes, three of them are out! They have flown out to the magnolia tree in a neighbour's garden.  Funny enough,... Continue Reading →

Birdy Rights, Wrongs and What Ifs

Intervention is a funny word, there’s a hint of positivity in it, as though you are somehow nobly going to the rescue, preventing something by your action.  Yet intervention is a dirty word.  You should never intervene in nature. But like most things in life, it’s not that black and white.  Man has a certain... Continue Reading →

An Award, Some Nominees and A Few More Birdy Thoughts

Now, wasn't that a nice, succinct title?! A few days ago Jester Queen nominated me for the Lovely Blog Award which I mentioned in a previous post and today I'm back to fulfil a few more criteria. First up, I have to share seven things about myself that I haven't previously shared.  Hm, what can... Continue Reading →

Parenting Issues

I think we have teenagers in the house.  You can recognise the signs.  Teenagers come in various distinctive forms but teenagers they are.  There are the ones who pull their hair across their faces, who skulk in the corners and deep recesses of life and who are awkward in their shyness.  That’s Rocky.  Dependent but...
