He had been away a week and I was getting concerned (as you do) then coming back from a walk there he was in the clematis as bold as brass
After being away for a week I was starting to wonder........as you do
I think this is his fourth year that he has been visiting
No female yet this year, he did last year and was in and out collecting food in what I called his fast mode, zooming in and out without so much as a thank you!
So hopefully this next visitor from this morning will not be too regular
Very laid back Sprawk in the back garden,
Smart looking bird
Good to see but not too often:-)
Going out now for dinner, better make the most of it in case they lock us over 70's away for a few months!!!!!
Lot to learn

Super photos Gaynor and so nice to see Titch again and also the Sprawk although I hope nothing in your garden is on its menu.

Certainly is startling news and not sure how Mike and I would go on as if he has to isolate it wouldn't work very well when we share the same home if I was coming and going and a risk of bringing back the virus. Guessing I may have to isolate too but only time will tell when the Government clarify things properly. Currently praying the next two weeks go without a hiccup as we are so close to getting completion on the apartment (27th) and having waited 15 months for it I'd hate it to go pear-shaped now ! We are avoiding crowds, not raiding the shops ! although I did manage to pick up a bottle of milk and some carrots in a local store this morning lol
