Thankyou all for some really nice comments welcoming my blog - only two problems, I am now about to watch England get beat at footie woops! sorry! I meant play footie and its still p---ing down so no let up for our avian friends. Hey! It's great haven't heard anyone bad-mouthing either a Kite or Buzzard I guess it means the rain has kept the moaners or the birds in the dry. I will of course be looking out for these magnificent birds as soon as the sky clears of rain and cloud and becomes a much more beautiful spectacle due in no small part to the superb displays put on by these wonderful creatures.
