Dry and bright here at the moment
Just spoken to Bob apparently he's in Anglesey this morning taking photos of some rare tern. He set off just after midnight to get there :rolleyes: errr won't be popping over to join him needless to say.
Not sure what the day has in store just going to play it by ear.
Take care peeps

Good morning all, not much planned for today, looks like a dry day ahead so I may get to tidy the garden a bit more. I went through half the garden over the last two days but as you know i get so tired so quick and have to do bits in short stages, flock are all fine, hope you have a good day.

Morning all, i am unfortunately self-isolating!
I have worked in the public throughout the whole of the pandemic and not isolated once, then right at the end before restrictions are lifted a lad on my team tests positive. 10 days working from home!
Sure the parrots will enjoy the company and the house will be clean tidy and organised (she says!)

Thought id allow Bo to have his breakfast out his cage today, normally he eats inside as he actually focuses on his food and not his toys, but i thought let’s have a change!
To show his appreciation he has launched a raspberry at the wall after squashing it up, then where else would you wipe your beak apart from said wall. I have to laugh because its as though he has said HA i will show you mum!

Fifi on the other hand is an angel eating her veggies with no issues, i seem to have one trouble child!

Going to get a parrot toy order in and crack on with the cleaning, hope everybody has a great day!

Sorry to hear you are having to self isolate @Lauraj as you say after all this time too, and of course hope tests results are negative.
I did smile at Bo and the raspberry - nothing like stains on the walls is there! Glossops corner and it is know as 'Glossops corner', gets plenty of fruits poms, passion fruits, raspberries and other berries flicked and it sticks very well to the walls and the nearby radiator! Theothers aim theirs at the curtains Lol.

Sorry to hear you have to self isolate @Lauraj I bet Bo and Fifi are loving having their Mummy home.
Yesterday we were on are way to a sealife centre that we booked a fee days ago.
On the way We saw a Tawney owl out in the middle of the road. This is in the country side but cars drive fast In that area. So I pleaded Roy to stop which wasn't easy on that road and see if the little owl is ok. Roy Brought him/her to me In the back of the car. Looked very young and not fully grown. I didn't stroke him or her back as I didn't want to rub the oil's from the feathers. So I gently had a look at him or her. No obvious injuries but that's not to say the little owl isn't injured. You never know what internal injuries he/she may have. Wings were same level, no droop and flew a bit but not much so hoping wings are OK.
It seemed in shocked and quite stunned. Little owl did fly to me a bit when Roy went to hand him/her over to me. Straight away he Just snuggled up to me.
Roy went and knocked at the only door in the area. Luckily they were lovely! and big animals lovers too. A few years ago the same happen to a barn owl. The barn owl stays in their fields and comes close to them. They put him or her in a box with blanket and put the little owl in a dark room. We gave them the details for the animal sanctuary that is close to them. So we left the owl, with them. Hopefully the animal sanctuary ambulance came. The animal sanctuary were brilliant when we found a injured Wren. We had no car and they got their Ambulance out to us quickly.
I just hope little owl is ok. Roy didn't give them my contact details. Roy said though you will be devastated if he or she didn't make it. So it's best to let it go and leave the animal sanctuary to help it.
Just hoping and praying little owl is ok

Sounds newly fledging youngster probably a little too eager at trying to be first to be fed and whoops a daisy down they come! Very kind of you to stop and make sure it was taken to safety it wouldn't have lasted long on a road :(

I went birding today and saw LOADS and LOADS and LOADS of things might spam you all later lol.

My GP caught up with me on the phone whilst I was out ...... I got an ear bending. Blood pressure way too high so they are doubling my tablet dosage. Bloods came back o except for cholesterol ..... its when he said he rarely came across somebody with such high numbers that the lecture started :rolleyes: when I said be glad its in single figures for a change he did laugh though then said yeah but not by much ... it's only 9.7 this time :naughty2: anyway have to take more tablets ... flipping statins added to the list of pills. Did say if they upset my stomach like they did last time I will not be taking them! They reply was swift .... we'll be going through every single one there is until we find one that doesn't :BangHead: can't stalk birds if I flipping rattle!!

@DizzyBlue I have to agree re statins, the generic ones do not agree with me so I have Lipitor and it must be Lipitor so that's what GP issues and pharmacy for a while took its time to realise that and kept giving me generic ones insisting they are the same, well the make up is similar but unsuitable for me. So just something to bear in mind.
