Firstly, let me say, I have only just noticed my error, and I’ve been doing this for almost a third of a year (indeed, only 14 days short of 122 days), because it’s a leap year. It’s not out of 365, but 366. I will have to remember to keep that going.
I was going to go out for a walk today, but even without doing so, I have managed to clock up over 11,000 steps.
I have one of the Neos cameras set up looking at the table, but I had to turn off the movement notification because the camera was getting the leaves blowing in any breeze, so it was a waste of time. I bought a really cheap tablet (£74) to view it on a regular basis, whilst every thing was fine for the first few weeks, it refuses to connect now, so it’s my phone that I am dependent upon.
When I catch them (on the screen) I love watching them, they eat with a frenzy and are gone as quickly as they come. Quite often as I go out to load the table, I see starlings sitting on the roofs of adjacent buildings. Not long after I go back, and provided that cats are not out, they descend. The pleasure is though, tinged with sadness that I can’t feed all birds, all wild animals. It is through nature that they live and suffer and that is it. I hate the thought of them suffering.
