It's time for the RSPB birdwatch this weekend ... we did it yesterday, but 2 crows was about as exciting as it got here - and I was hoping for a golden eagle ! (Answers to the name of Norman, and is on the loose somewhere in Bedfordshire, if you were wondering what I'm talking about).

Norman doesn't seem a very macho name for an eagle! For some reason, we seem to have so few birds when it's the birdwatch, so I haven't joined in for a few years. (I did see a little wren yesterday, but you can bet your bottom dollar that it wouldn't appear if I had a clipboard in my hand!!)
The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually. We have learned to fly in the air like birds and swim in the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers and sisters.

We do this every year. I had expected a very poor showing, as it seems very quiet in the garden at the moment. However, we came up with 12 species in the end - not large numbers of anything except woodpigeons. Noticed a robin in and out of our garage via a broken window. Maybe we'll have chicks again!

Not done it this year. Mr JG hasn't been feeding the birds lately either
