of boilers and birds

I was just going to head for Dad's this morning when I remembered I hadn't changed the clock on my boiler so I went to do it and found the damn thing was on and I couldn't turn it off!! So I called British Gas to be told soeone would be with me between 12 and 6. Which seemed to mean I was missing my sunday lunch! BUT QUELLE SURPRISE I got a phone call at five to 12 to say they'd be there in 5 minutes!! He quickly fixed it and I told Dad we were on for dinner in the evening.

So I headed to Rye Meads. The birds were frustratingly out of camera range but I did get to see a Kingfisher, Green Sandpiper, a singing Chiffchaff AND a singing Blackcap!



So one photo! A certain person in Newfoundland would not be happy!! So I headed to Fisher's Green and the feeders had been filled!

OH TRICIA WOULD LIKE ME TO REMIND YOU TO ENLARGE THE PICS!! AS THEY BENEFIT FROM IT

I wish I was better at identifying birds. In our garden the other day, I saw one with a rosy head... definitely not a robin, but I didn't know what it was. I will have to study our bird books a bit more!
