Today,Julia (Waddy) and I ,had one of our regular days out together for lunch,a good natter,..as you do,and just a llttle shopping ..nothing too major :o)
We went for a coffee first,and sat outside in the warm sunshine..that was nice in itself..:o)
Anyway this little baby Starling decided to join us,on the next chair..no doubt eavesdropping on our conversation :o)


He stayed for ages,oblivious to all the other people around him..he just kept opening his little beak,but with no sound ..Could he have been waiting for food ? you bet ! two young girls threw a few crumbs on the floor ,he had his fill,then he was off..It was just so lovely watching this little bird,feeling his way around his big new world,and it made our day :o)

Have you emailed my old address ,Sandra?

Lovely photo Sandra, pleased the little one was given some crumbs as so many places frown upon the public feeding the birds, I know its to discourage vermin and can understand that but I admit there are times when I find myself being a messy eater and just have to brush my clothing off after having a little snackette, always make sure the table gets a wipe with the serviette as well, one gets so many crumbs when eating a scone as I bet you already know.....

Glad that you had a good day together , and that the weather was kind .
I'm in Majorca at present , and the weather is a little too kind .(Not moaning you understand).
Love these fledgelings at the moment , but they are not always too smart ; dancing in front of the cats , for instance , instead of flapping up off the ground !

We did,Driad,thank you,and glad you are having a lovely holiday,despite the heat..We love Majorca too...They are so vulnerable at the fledging stage aren't they?I hope the little fella makes it ok..:o)

I've noticed a pattern in your outings Sandra ....they all seem to revolve around FOOD, it's a wonder you're not the size of a house! Did you know starlings are on the red list? There was a time you couldn't move for them in town centres wasn't there? I have a few families visit my garden every day for a food fight, clever, pushy little birds and great photo too:-)

Lol,Ba..you have me well sussed..Luckily ,I'm not prone to gaining weight,which is just as well :o) I didn't know Starlings were on the red list,but I hardly ever see any in my garden...such a shame..

28 Jun, 2015

 

I'll send you some:-)

28 Jun, 2015

 

Okey dokey,Ba..just point them in a northerly direction please :o)
