birdie patrol

At this time of year we like to assist Mrs H with birdie patrol and support duties (her words not ours). 
But sometimes we get the sense that she would rather we occupy ourselves doing something else.

We go ahead and assist anyway!

... here I am... what needs doing?

a spot of birdie food tasting?

... checking on the nesting furs (yes its ours)

Personally, I like to take on the job of sorting through the seeds..

... but sometimes I get distracted - now let me see what the flies are up to in the greenhouse ..

Now all the birdie food is in place... I STALK ... 

sit, stare.. and wait

 .. and perhaps doze a little (relax is my middle name)

I watch and wait too... 

 AND if YOU were a birdie this is what YOU would see...
Note:  in 3 years: birdie catches = Nil

Stepping out with Mr Bingley

 “All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche  

 Featuring in this post:

My dear Mum bonding with Mr Bingley during 'walk-about' duty (though of course it is not a 'duty' it is a joy) while on holiday in Cornwall!

“For pleasure has no relish unless we share it” 
~ Virginia Woolf
