    lovely photo update Mike, glad you are ok and to see the beautiful flowers in your garden and the charming LTT's including their young, always have a real soft spot for these fluffy tennis balls with racket handle lol

    Thank you.

    Lollipops, fluffy tennis balls, love the pet names.

    Good to hear from you again Mike and you are well. I'm still living in my lock down bubble roaming around the garden looking for subjects.


    10 LTT is really greedy, we have not seen any for months now but lucky you with all those visitors. Fab

    Thank you Tony.

    I'm still not venturing further than the local shops and garden, particularly with the rake of undesirables desecrating the outdoors!

  • I think I've about caught up, my apologies if I've missed anyone out.

    I'm not so sure Iike the new normal, but I've no choice but to go along with it.

    Up a cheerful note, more fluffy tennis balls/lollipops in the garden late last night...  Dirty stop out, and naughty parents! LOL 

    There's no mistaking that tail!

    That was a busy feeder!

    Apologies for the long delay in replying, things have been busy here. More about that soon, and more lollipop piccies to follow.

  • More LTT pics, and some vids at the end,

    First, apologies if I've already shared some of these photos, I'm still playing catch up.

    The 19th, and some long shadows over the patio, it almost had an autumnal air about it that morning.... (PS I couldn't find the reflections & shadows thread in the search box)

    The clover on the grass was getting lots of visits from white tailed bumble bees

    Juvenile House Sparrows

    Who photobombed who! 

    I'll not guess, or ask (I'm still toooo innocent to understand), what this one was getting up to, with a down feather attached to its back!

    Not clever editing, I'm not that good, it was three house sparrows, one adult and two juveniles just at the right time. A lucky shot....

    Round and round the garden or, should that be feeder.....

    A pond lily looking rather resplendent......

    No prises for guessing this little one...

    and ground feeding as the pellets were falling from feeding birds on the pellet feeder above!

    Might be a case for PPE, a hard hat!

    And more LTT's....

    BTW, these were supplying the robin in the earlier pic....

    Some more videos from the new camcorder, the long tailed tits are back with vengance, and I'm not so sure there isn't a second brood!

    Regular visitors to the pellet feeder, long tailed tits, blue tit and juvenile house sparrow

    Now the pellet feeder has been filled! 

    A sole long tailed tit is first to the freshly filled pellet feeder, but it isn't long before its solitary feeding is shared....

    Thank you Linda.

    I'm having good fun with the camcorder, I don't think I've ever read a destruction manual so much ever, until this beastie!

    All I need now is a seat to sit on that doesn't sink into the ground......

    I think the LTT's are the favs here, by both myself and Mrs PR.

    Lol

    I think all my wildlife have sunk underground with the rain !

    Yes the LTTs are always lovely to see and hear... mines are in the trees beyond the garden as all feeders are put away for now!

    Good luck on finding that perfect seat!

    I hope those little birdies haven't sunk, though I was wondering what had happened to your garden pics.

    As for finding the seat, I think I need to find firmer ground LOL
