Garden invasion!

Despite the presence of Black Stork, Black Kite and Little Bittern in the county, I had a deadline to meet, so I stayed home and managed to complete the first draft of my next book and send it to the editor / designer. (It's called 'Uninvited Companions': I don't suppose you'll have any problems working out that it isn't about gull identification!)

There's always something worth pointing a camera at in the garden at the moment: both male Turtles dropped in from time to time, as did a dozen or more squabbling Starlings with just a single adult to keep them in order!

At the moment we regularly have five species of Columbidae in the garden: Wood Pigeon, Collared Dove, Feral Pigeon, Stock Dove and Turtle Dove! Linda is also catering for two male Pheasants and their harems, and a pair of Red-legged Partridges (and the odd rat!)
