Table for two

Yesterday, at lunchtime, my daughter spotted the comical sight of this Woodpigeon pair having a lunch of sunflower hearts at a rather cosy table for two! Once his dinning partner left the remaining Woodpigeon appeared to eat twice the speed - no editing here! Recently the Starlings and woodpigeons have rather taken over the feeding stations leaving little room for even the smallest of birds – as you can see below.

Videos, shown above and throughout this Blog, now stand at a total of 22. I have now made changes to the original shortcuts used to view my videos within the post they were published. I hope these changes will make it easier for those who may like see my videos again and for those who missed the post.

‘Bird video shortcuts’, within the posts of January will not be visible after today. It will not be removed. The programming of this Blog is set to show the current month of the current year. After today to see ‘Bird video shortcuts’ and any other posts in January, or previous months, simply click on the arrow to the right of January and it will expand to show all posts published then.

BIRD VIDEOS, located at the top of the right hand column of this Blog, contains the links to Bird videos taken in my garden. This will now take you directly to the full list of videos that have appeared in this Blog. Please note that the date shown beside the link is when the video was taken and not necessarily when the post was published.

Twenty-five
is the number of posts that my Blog has been set to show. By this I mean the maximum number you can see if you scroll down through the posts. Again, any posts that are not shown can still be located through the menus in the Blog Archive – for example the ‘Site Intro’ in November, 2006. I believe twenty-five is enough to show as my videos and pictures will take a lot in bandwidth to load – apologies here to those who have had difficulties.

The video clips, shown above, were taken in my garden on January 30th 2007.
