Pecking order

Today’s guest picture is another from our older son’s visit to Anstruther and shows that he took his friends with him. Another of the regular Moorland bird feeders was away on holiday today so I had a second opportunity this week to act as a fill-in feeder filler so I went up after breakfast toContinue reading “Pecking order”

King of the castle

I didn’t have time to dangle anything this morningContinue reading “The Wizard of Oz”
