Are You Talking to Me?

My not-quite-three-year-old daughter announced today (in a miffed voice):

"I can hear someone not talking to me!"

Yours, Exhausted

Really exhausted today - half the family suddenly came down with a stomach bug last night with the result that I spent the night awake shuttling to and fro with buckets of.. well you get the picture!

Guess What I Saw Today?

I am afraid that in my efforts to try to get my photo blog up and running, I have rather neglected my other two blogs :(

However, today there was great excitement in my household, so I thought that maybe I should use that as a catalyst for posting something here!

The excitement was caused by a sparrow hawk that landed in our garden and proceeded to eat a pigeon she had caught. We all watched with interest, and I tried to get some video footage and a few quick shots of it.

Whilst videoing, I was shocked to discover that for the first 5 to 10 minutes, the pigeon was still alive - it was literally being eaten alive by the hawk! I must admit that I was a bit shaken by that. We didn't do anything to intervene, though, since I do prefer to let nature take its course with this kind of thing.

Here is a photo of the said visiter:

What's In A Name?

A quick comment - in order not to embarrass them too much or cause other alarm and despondency, I will, in a lot of cases, used alternative names for other people that I talk about from time to time.
