Victor Meldrew mode - "I don't believe it!" This is my second attempt at this post. All done once with the copies of the video clips being uploaded to Flickr. When I posted it and checked things Flickr had made a complete mess of all the clips with missing frames and jerky movement. Hopefully that will make this week's three disasters over and done with. Copies are now on YouTube - fingers crossed.
No new subjects but new clips so on with the show......
Most days I hear a Magpie chuntering away in a tree. I often wonder whether this is the nearest they get to a song or whether it is their equivalent of Victor Meldrew, always complaining about something. (This is the only clip with sound today)
Here a Sparrow is pretending to be disguised as a Goldfinch so it can find a feeding space.
If a Goldfinch can't find space at the feeders the only thing left is to glean any seed dropped by the more fortunate ones.
Finally another opportunity arose to film the Dunnock as it searched the wooden beams which support the feeders then moved to the top of the bird table and ended up sliding off when it lost its grip on the plastic roof.
Have a good weekend everyone and don't get blown over by the windy weather forecast for Saturday.
