233/366 It’s all about the birds

The last few days have been quite glorious from a weather point of view. We spent a fair of time in the garden. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Mind you, the birds weren’t to impressed. I detected their frustration. We have two cats. One of them was sat under the bird table as we were sat having a break. I was watching the starlings – they were particularly annoyed. A wing of three of them swooped in a very tight group under the table, buzzing her. I think as humans, we are very proud of our technology and abilities, whenever I watch starlings in flight, I am reminded of Jet fighters, not that I am impressed with our technology, it’s the capability of the birds that impresses me. They really are a joy to watch. Even the pigeons which I always equate with the C130 Hercules nick named “The Fat Albert” they are a large grey apparently ungainly birds, but quite graceful in flight.

On a Friday, we often have Fish & Chips down at the waterfront. Like a lot of people if we have any chips left we give them to the birds. They squabble over them. I hate to think of that as entertainment, but I love watching their behaviour.

What I would really like is for them, the starlings especially, to not be afraid to visit the bird table whilst we are in the garden. I don’t think we are far from that. I was cleaning the BBQ in preparation for our first one of the year tomorrow, turned around and there were three of them on the fence eyeing up the table, one of them did hop down briefly. But flew away as soon as I twitched. It is at the start of the nice weather, hopefully as the spring and summer progress, they will hopefully get used to us.

I’ve also started looking for butterflies. Haven’t seen one yet, but I’m sure I will do before long. Exciting times.
