The weather keeping me off the cycle!!!! Still full of would be Lance Armstrong’s where we walk. They are just beginning to put their wide tyres on. At least I can hear them coming. Weather freakishly warm last week. 17c. But when the sun disappears it it cowd.

We used to have lots of magpies all around us that made an awful din. Constant squabbling with the squirrels who try to steal the eggs. One day it was quiet for hours and when I looked out I saw the reason. There was an owl sat in one of the trees.

A real one will do the trick every time broady, There is a sparrow Hawk that nests in St Pauls church tower and, When that comes out for a fly about, All the pigeons disappear off the roofs near me, The pigeons gather on the roofs near me because an old dear 3 doors away feeds the buggers, I would't mind if they kept to her roof but, because I feed the birds, they think its an invite for them as well, We also get magpies, I hate them because they steal the blackbirds eggs and they are fearless, They would gang up on a sparrow hawk and steal its kill, nature is a wonderfull thing but mostly unfair, Crying or Very sad

I went to a resort in Mexico where they were plagued with birds and they had a guy with a falcon on his wrist patrolling round the pool and every so often he let it off his hand to get rid of the birds. A bit off putting at first when a falcon swoops over your head as you are having a pint.
