Well hello Gee! Lovely to see your avatar pop again, Alfie looks a little cutie and your photos of fledglings and garden are wonderful.

How lovely to see that Millie is still keeping you company too. Looking forward to seeing more of your lovely blogs this year. Stay safe and take care.

I will always think of you riding a Segway! ... :o))

Welcome back Gee. It is good to see in spite of the downs you still have your eye on the things that are important to us all. Alfred Lewis looks like a real bundle of fun. Being able to see him at bath time every evening is a bonus. In normal times it would be impossible to join in every day. Yet again your use of technology encourages us to look to the future. Your baby birds are so sweet. They do have very good parents who should be able to forage for a 5 star menu in your full to bursting garden. Millie is sporting a pepper and salt hairdo like ladies up and down the country. She looks well. Stay safe and I look forward to seeing more from you.

How lovely to see you back here Gee. It would seem we've both been away from GoY for a while for various reasons.

Alfred Lewis (love the name) looks a little poppet. Thank goodness for technology so you can see him at bath time. Those cuddles will be all the sweeter when you can finally get to see him. I know how hard it is not to see our families, but what must be, must be. We wouldn't want anything to happen to them due to us not being patient.

We have had lots of birds of various varieties visiting our feeding station, no doubt feeding youngsters. Is that a Sparrow Hawk sitting on the fence? Lets hope they keep away from your little song birds.

Your garden is looking lovely, for so early in the year. I hope the sudden cold snap hasn't spoilt anything for you.

Millie is looking remarkably well, bless her and she has obviously not lost any of her sparkle.

Take care, stay safe.

Thank you all for the welcome back. Hope you haven't been battered by the strong winds we've had here. My neughbour has lost her whole length of back fence, taking one of my panels with it. My son in law and grandson came to our rescue and managed to make our gardens secure overnight. I always worry about the large trees by the pond coming down!

I'm keen to have another Segway trip, Shirley, as they do a twilight run. Expensive though. We should all have been going off on our holiday this weekend, staying close to the Farne Islands. We have booked for the same time next year, fingers crossed.

Take care everyone.

So lovely to have you back and to see your garden looking so lovely and inviting. Thank you for introducing us to Alfred and I hope you can be properly reunited very soon, he looks gorgeous!
Sorry about the damage caused by the winds, they have come just at the wrong time.
Do stay with us. So good to see your name once more.

Well, your garden is still looking beautiful.
Your little great-grandson looks beautiful too.
I am expecting my first granddaughter any day now. She will be a Swedish citizen. According to the government, it could be a year before be get to see her in real life.

Good to see you back & joining in with GoY once again, Gee!

It's a treat to see your wonderful garden again, G. and to meet your gg-baby. I haven't been on GoY in ages as well. I don't have much to post as winter is still with us... It snowed this morning..and our strong winds have all been Arctic gyre type.. blazing cold. looking forward to your next installment.

Gee, I think many folk will be going without holidays this year. Next year we can all make up for it! ... :o)

Thank you for this lovely blog. I'm glad the fledglings survived, the parents do take care of them when out of the nest but of course they are at great risk of all predators. Nice to see your lovely garden & first great grandchild too. I hope you will be properly reunited soon.

Thank you all for your kind comments. Linda, it will be difficult for you to be unable to meet your new baby for so long. Lots of photos and videos help a bit.

Having some work done on bungalow, explanations later, so may be difficult sometimes to get to tablet or computer but hope to catch up with some blogs and photos this weekend.

Nice to hear from you again. I've missed a lot myself recently too.

Welcome back Gee, its lovely to see a blog from you, what a gorgeous photo to start with, Alfred looks a right bonny lad, lets hope you are soon able to give him a proper hands on cuddle without the worry of this terrible virus, at least with all the modern technology we can at least see our loved ones. whilst chatting..
Your garden looks as lovely and well kept as always, its a pleasure to see the visitors, you always have been able to get some really good shots of the birds and suchlike and I can see you haven't lost your touch when putting them all together in the blog, Millie is looking amazing, what's a little deafness and the odd bout of stiffness between friends, happens to a lot of us, lol...
Loved the blog and the photo's Gee...

How lovely to see you again Gee and your fab pictures.
Alfred looks a little treasure and so good that you can see him enjoying bath time. Your wildlife pics are just as good as always, lovely baby birds and safe in your garden which is looking very very nice! And there is Millie, getting to be an elderly lady now, but just as sleek and beautiful as ever.
Take care Gee, like we all are, it'll take a long pull out of lockdown, but then there's no rush for us, and we are lucky with our gardens to keep us busy. X

A lovely blog Gill and so nice to see you back , Alfred is a sturdy looking little chap I'm pleased you can enjoy his progress on video at least its something in these strange times .. I would worry about the Sparrow hawk I've witnessed what they can do on a number of occasions ...

That's right Amy, I thought it was a sparrow hawk. I remember when one came swooping down into my garden and knocked the birdcage with my canary Jasper onto the ground. The bottom came off but the cage landed upright with Jasper still on her perch! Weeks later her feathers started dropping out and then I realised it was stress, poor little love. They did grow again, but we kept her inside from then on.
