Birdie Spotting in the garden is probably my favourite hobby, to be honest my ONLY hobby. I do like batting woolly things about the house too, but this isn't serious enough for what I class as a hobby. I like eating whatever I can find, but I believe this is a natural instinct and not a hobby either. I have never been allowed to catch a birdie on account of Mrs H (hawk eye) shadowing me, but I am working on it.
... this is me conducting a bit of spotting
Later, I climbed the tree so I was on hand if a birdie perched in it (craftily, I chose the tree with the fat ball in it so I could lick it while I waited).
Darcy loves birdie spotting too, but he also likes frogging.
He is particularly good playing the 'waiting game'
.. and knows unusual places to look.
