Yesterday morning I was working on the plot when I stopped to watch a parakeet on the nut bird feeder for at least several minutes. My hands were dirty and the camera was in the shed so I just stood and watched it peck at the nuts then look round, which it keep doing upright, sideways and even upside down. I was no more than 15 feet away and this colourful bird stayed on the feeder for far longer than any other bird I’ve seen previously. Also whilst plotting a young fox, not this one, sauntered across the plot even pausing to stop and exchange looks with me!
After Saturday it was good to see that Daffy had a really good Sunday morning watching the wonderful wildlife in her garden.
Thanks to NiC, over on his ever excellent London Daily Nature Photo, for the link to Nature Blog Network. I’ve only has a quick look at this but there appears to be lots of wonderful wildlife blogs listed.
As you will have guessed there’s nothing new of note on TV next week except Natural World’s Clever Monkeys on BBC2 Tuesday at 8.00pm in which David Attenborough narrates an entertaining romp through the world of monkeys.
A comment appeared on my blog yesterday from Meeeeeeeeeee who some of you will remember as Fraggle from elsewhere but stopped blogging for a while. It’s good to see her back, and why not stop by her blog to say hello!
Over on Looking skyward I’m continuing to do a post a day all this month.
Have a good weekend!
