BACK IN THE COVID - The Lockdown Diary Day 9
Having worked pretty hard over the last few days we sat for an hour in the quiet outdoors listening to the birds chattering to each other and absentmindedly watching the Bee Flies typical of the warm sunny weather to be enjoyed at this time of year. Sharon made use of our little decking area and I enjoyed the sun perched on a mound of work in progress. We both of us have a pretty strong whistle and are in the habit of answering the bird calls back. Since some of them are clearly making territorial signals this interchange to and fro can go on for quite a while. I am not sure why it had never occurred to us but if we are good enough then our feathered resident might bugger off to someone else’s garden. Or as Sharon put it “if you are not careful our Great Tit might think there is an even bigger Tit lives here”. Not quite sure how to take that.
