It has rained all day and rather than go out in the rain and fill the feeders, I took the easy way out and tossed seed out by the handful. I didn't think they would mind just this once. This little chap was running around like I do sometimes when I drink too much coffee. No I didn't get my sharp clear photos, but I did get probably the last ones before he disappears for the winter. It's still early days but I never know when he is going to turn up.
My ever faithful dove who wisely refuses to drink anything with caffeine, calmly flew in and allowed me to take his photo. Sweet little thing!
I have been sneezing for the last three days and I have finally come to the conclusion that I am starting to come down with a cold, I have been trying to ignore the fact that I have a scratchy throat but I'm beginning to feel like I need an early night. I wouldn't mind but whenever I have gone out I have been diligently using a small bottle of hand-sanitizer that I keep in the car. I do this on a regular basis but become even more compulsive-obsessive - like Lady MacBeth - when I am anxious not to catch anything with the busy time we have coming up, and especially because our friend from England arrives next week. Well, at least I caught my cold now instead of then and hopefully it will be gone by then.
