Bloody squirrels

Lynne Featherstone feeding birds with Tim WebbWas away with the birds again today – when Tim Webb from the RSPB came to put up some bird feeders with me in my garden.

None have yet come to inhabit the bird box I put up a little while back – but I think it probably takes a while. And a bloody squirrel has just nicked one of the fat balls I hung from my tree.

My wire bird feeder is more squirrel-proof – so must get some more food to put in that. If this goes on – I will soon be bird-watching!

P.S. Further to my earlier blog, over on the Spectator Martin Bright writes on the New Deal of the Mind gathering himself.
