    evenin all....if you are old enough to remember that? Cloudy but warm today, but looked in the fridge and saw stuff that needed to be used up (some of it bought mainly for Dora but I get what she is bored with), so we had a cook up session and I am sure she eats more than usual when she thinks she is helping, and although she wont eat finely chopped chop she tucked into grated carrot and courgette! ...cooked up with haricot beans and piled into green peppers (ugh) then roasted it made interesting concoction but tasted OK.
    Went out to sow another pot of sugar snaps and was just contemplating when a thwack sound made me look to see the snake dropped from the wall (or roof) and sliding away to behind the log pile... dont know who was most surprised! it turns out to be a grass snake but quite large - about 3 - 4 foot long. Scroll down to find him - this was taken a few days ago and seems to be a favourite place to sunbathe.

    Evening all. Been busy with the grandkids and trying to prevent Ziggy from making herself bald, so not had much time for anything else over the last couple of days.

    The new morning out time routine, and keeping them separate during the day, does seem to be helpful. Actually watched Zigs playing with a preening toy I bought her for a good while this morning, snipping it instead of herself. We will get her checked out at the vets on Thursday irrespective though.

    Grandkids go home tomorrow and as noisy as the house is when they are here (including very loud screeching for the first day or so until the birds get used to the boys again), I shall miss having them around again. Will need to get them back in a couple of weeks again.

    Have a lovely evening everybody.

    @Wendy Cooper-Wolfe good grief I would have passed out if that snake had fallen where I was!
    Last year I came across one where we tip the grass cuttings it was fast asleep in a partial shady/sunny spot - I legged it back indoors.
    @cazimodo Fingers crossed the preening toy keeps Ziggy busy and leaves her feathers alone.

    i hope Nigel is recovering as he certainly missed, just had an update from shirly she has been diagnosed with a blood clot in her lung and will be given treatment for it, unfortunatly she is in quite a lot of pain, as far as the C they belive it has gone from its original place and she now has to go next month to check it has not spread to any other place, My thoughts and love are with you stay strong and possative. i got a new flock member today its a lovely parrot but i do not have a name yet, IMG_0359.JPG I would love to know how old it is and what country it may of been made in, i have never seen any thing like it, the head comes off to srore something in it. i will have to keep it well away from the flock
