Well-caught, David! Looking into her eyes, she reminds me of one of the "nowty" headmistesses or hospital-matrons of long ago.....I wouldn't like to get on the wrong side of her!


Comment by Ron D on 7th September 2012 at 09:27
Sod um ,make em have um . Good one David.


Comment by Janice on 7th September 2012 at 10:03
Quite agree Irene. Nice photo but what an angry looking bird!


Comment by Al.C. on 7th September 2012 at 10:11

Comment by Maureen Andrews nee McGovern on 7th September 2012 at 10:24
Lovely shot,it looks like she's saying..now that's close enough.


Comment by Mick on 7th September 2012 at 10:49
Its surprising to see how nicely colored our birds are the starling looks mostly black until you get close up.

Oh, here we go again. I knew it wouldn't be long before another moan from dh made its way on here again.
Personally, I don't mind what the pics are providing we don't have the same subject, whatever it may be, for days on end. We have had a varity of things this week....something completely different each day. Thankyou to all the photographers.

Comment by irene roberts on 8th September 2012 at 14:12
Why are women often referred to as "birds"? Is it because of the worms they pick up?


Comment by ann21 on 9th September 2012 at 16:46
roy How dare you.


Comment by ann21 on 9th September 2012 at 16:48
Irene Priceless


Comment by irene roberts on 9th September 2012 at 18:57
Touche, ann21, touche! So many men are quick with the jibes against women, but can't take it back. Mind you, our Roy hasn't retaliated so he's probably a good sport!


Comment by Roy on 9th September 2012 at 20:30
No i haven,t retaliated Irene i appreciate your worm joke, i can take it as well as give it, i did end my statement with,lol, so it wasn,t meant seriously.


Comment by Jane on 10th September 2012 at 10:39
That looks like a young blackbird which could be male or female.


Comment by irene roberts on 10th September 2012 at 14:48
I knew it was only a joke, Roy. It's nice to have a laugh on here instead of arguments.
