reverting to type

I said today it was only a matter of time until this blog reverted to birds, cats and plants. IT HAS NOW HAPPENEDSpringwatch ended today so I will have to make do with the handful of birds that visit our garden.  I was told a story  by a friend this afternoon -  he spent his evacuation by a river somewhere in the South of England!  One day out exploring in his boat he saw a swallow on the water's surface - wings spread, face down, floating. He rowed over to it for a closer look, scooped it up in his hand to examine it and it flew off.....

One last thing before lights out.......Charlotte Hardy has some beautiful paintings of all sorts on her site.  I've just looked again and they just make me want to see more.  Her birds are my favourite!
