Today 27th January was bird count day here in the UK where you could count the number of birds and species in your garden over the course of an hour

Steve Drury yup this sure looks a treat on the enormous screen sitting on the desk, Cashew likes creeping behind it already and lying on the new keyboard!!! One day I'll capture the beauty of a rare bird in the woods or on the beach :)))

Would look far better nestled in a caserole dish with some carrot, leek and a botle of claret.

nadiakushnir Thanks dear Nadia ~ best wishes ~ nick

keepclicking I think you are right KC and well at leas the claret would go down well :)))

Nick Todaro on January 29, 2013

Yes definitely I would go for the claret :) although I have eaten dubs and they taste just like chickens but more important what are all these birds doing in your pages Nick? :))

Nick Weall on January 29, 2013

Nick Knack, The reason for all the birds Nick is that the weather has been so fowl that they have been the only thing worth aiming at. I also find it a bit of a challenge to get the bird near enough and in focus. This severely tests my patience as I don't usually have much :)))
