In reply to patily:
Morning all and thanks Mary for posting the beautiful sunrise. Stargazing last night so easy for me just to pop in and start the threads :-)
What a pleasure it is to see it dry here - scene just now
Morning, Karen. 33 came in earlier with that big straight stick on the left. I wasn't fast enough to capture the moment. I think Maya then sent him off to get breakfast.
In reply to Alison Copland:
Hi Alison, thanks, missed that but I see the stick!!
Well no breakfast in nest for Maya but 33 is keeping her company :-))
Oh, how sweet ... Maya has just got up and turned around so there are together .. awwww
I'm off out now with my dog as it is a lovely day here. SYAL
