The blackbird and the apple …

I know photos with weather or views are appreciated but today’s has neither … but it does have a blackbird and an apple, two words which actually played a part in the first “proper sentence” our eldest ever said! This bird and apple are just on the little breakfast terrace outside the garden door, so this is taken from the living room through the glass. On the existing feeder, the Canaries are stuffing themselves with tiny seeds, the blue tits are pigging out completely on a bit of Parmesan rind while also enjoying sunflower seeds … blue tits are called herrerillos in Spanish, the word means little blacksmith, because they hold a seed while hammering the hell out of it with their beaks! Here’s a photo that’s completely boring but it does show a blackbird and the apple she’s so enjoying … the base of the umbrella behind her is to be converted into a second bird feeder for fruit with incorporated bathing apparatus … watch this space! 😅
