I have had the loveliest day today. A bit of a lie in, Marmite for breakfast, lunch with a mate, a bit of shopping then home to watch the birds in the garden. Today’s spectacle was provided by these two. One blue tit arrived, checked out what was on offer, had a taste of everything, chirped and flew off. After about a minute he was joined by another blue tit, and one watched while the other ate (they definitely had their beady little eyes on me) and then they swapped over. I also saw a heron go over this afternoon, as well as the ubiquitous pigeons, gulls, magpies and sparrows. See what I mean about urban wildlife?
