Earnest won't like this one John.
I've tried different feeders but don't get these in my garden.

Harry C.You all know my feelings of photo`s of `wildlife`on Photo-a-Day.
I like to watch and listen to birds when outside or looking out of my lounge window.
Last Monday, whilst playing golf, several swallows were flying low around me. It`s marvellous that they don`t collide.

Better natural history picks than poetry .for that matter outs better. I also think that this is becoming more of a chat room.
birds of all species applauded .
nice one John.

FOR GODS SAKE - ENOUGH WITH THE BIRDS!!! If you want to post pictures of birds join a photography site or a bird watching site, not - and look at the header - Wigan world. I'm not saying they are badly taken, you're obviously a skilled photographer, but what does it show of Wigan to the world? This could've been taken anywhere


Boring boring boring boring and..... oh! Boring.

re are other ways of chatting

Re Ron-D's comments yesterday regarding P-O-T-D becoming a chat show,I agree with him
