I didn't see you at the gate, Brian! Just the usual suspects in the garden here, at the moment. I haven't seen a Brambling this week. Up to 11 Greenfinches which is a decent number. There were 3 Jays in one day last week. The white-capped Blackbird, a Treecreeper, yesterday and a couple of LTTs last week are as exotic as it gets lately!

Glad to hear that there was a quick solution to Linda's set-back.

Hell fire Brian lad,you were out in that stuff this morning !!!.Full marks for sheer doggedness I suppose, but be careful you dont make yourself ill as Lynda needs you around at present....you know how strict hospitals are over people visiting when they are not 100 %. All I am saying is just pace yourself as you have a lot on at the moment mate.
