Tag; you’re it! Catch me if you can!
I was sitting quietly in the lounge having a cuppa and doing crosswords, when I caught a movement out of the corner of my eye. When I looked up I saw a squirrel on the fence outside. I grabbed my camera and took a quick photo. Then I noticed that there were actually two Sparkies playing on the fence.
I wanted to take more shots, but my camera froze for some reason; maybe because it was jolly cold!
Anyway, it was nice to see these two chasing each other as if they were twitterpated! It means Spring is just around the corner.
All the birds around are noisily proclaiming their territories and there are Shouting Wars going on at all hours. On our dog walk a few days ago Little Monkey and I saw about eight Egyptian Geese, sitting high above us in the branches of the massive fir trees and also on the rooves of nearby houses, all honking loudly at each other. It was ear-shattering!
And I saw my first snowdrop that day too.
