We are all fascinated with this particular Jackdaw pair who survey everything as they hang out in their nest on the chimney over the way and also in the trees where they count the cars-
We are fascinated with the daddy’s unique white feathers on his head and front. He looks royal and is the only one like it in the flock so he is easy for us to spot!- I guess the mother bird can pick him out just as easily and see what he gets up to!

At 7 this morning ( maybe it tried before that)  the sun shone promising a nice day…..took the photo….. as it turned out the sun went in quickly and wasn’t as bright as it’s promise ….

decided to hang out at home…….

But the sun did come out in the end….in the  evening…… and for as long as it lasted it looked like a half eaten Easter egg still in bright wrapping and hiding in the trees! Yeah!

Nice chilled  but busy sort of day. The weather forecast for tomorrow is sun so with any luck will  definitely plant the seed potatoes and cut the grass (maybe)
