Post match discussion with my fellow coach when they flew overhead calling!

Mind you, for all the goal mouth action I might as well have been birding!

I now have Waxwing, Ring-necked Parakeet & Hobby on my Junior Football Sideline list!

Wow that's a fantastic sighting. I'd love to know, was it in a private garden? Or the hedges round Pickering Lodge perhaps?
Cheers.

Hi Maka. My local Tawnies have gone strangely quite just down the road from you in Hale Barns. Not heard a peep from them in 2010. Not sure why but this cold might have something to do with it.



Henry perhaps it is because all territories have been claimed and mates selected.
