He is gorgeous. So pleased Jane - you have a job for life now, lol. A think we'll need to bulk buy mealworms at this rate.

This bird is really cute. And so near!

Thanksyou all...it feels like a real privilege and a responsibility too.When back at work will only be able to hand feed twice a day instead of four times as am doing now !
Cannot explain the feeling .....

Thank you Milky - had to do something while off line for those days ! Back at school next week so he ll have to get used to me in mornings and evenings only , better start the training now .lol

Thanks Hollyeves its great isnt it .. yes they must weigh only an ounce or less oh was it you with the white wading birds on the beach ? we thought they may be Sanderlings if you have a chance to look at Elkes latest blog she has some great close up pics of them.

Ok BB... thanks i will have a look.....................

14 Apr, 2009

 

Just had a look at Elkes photos on beach... Yes i think they are sanderlings that we have here.......she took some great pics.....

14 Apr, 2009

 

She did...: )

BB: I've been using your trick during the days I've been at work all day - hide the mealworms from the bigger birds and hope they last a while.

Still works in hollow apple trunk Sawn...at least not noticed any fat blackbirds struggling in there !

14 Apr, 2009

 

Ha ha, I dont have any fat blackbirds either. The robins seems to have a few more brain cells than the others, lol, which is great as they remember where to find the hidden mealworms :)

Good one Dawn...did John stay awake after his full English ! Bet he didnt !!!

14 Apr, 2009

14 Apr, 2009

 

OMG Bet hes so jealous of Milkys Ray...sees those pics of him and thinks "oh I wish " LOL

14 Apr, 2009

 

One day, one day, lol. Actually, he's on the sofa next to me now, in Milky's "Sleeping Partner" mode. It catches up eventually, wait a minute ... where's the camera, ha ha.

14 Apr, 2009
