Getting two woodpeckers visiting the feeders, parent and junior, mind you junior is just as big as the parent. Managed to catch a pic, slightly naff, taken with my mobile through the lounge window and enlarged to bugry!


That's cool Steve, Never seen woodpeckers in this neck o the woods.

Knockhill is the other side of the Forth from me and it has been wishing down all morning here as well. Only starting to dry up a bit now.

The wind has got up now & the skies have darkened, Looks like a downpour soon, Temps have dropped too I was going to put a ASDA lasagne in the oven for tea but it's too humid to cook owt


Henry's apple juice stores replenished only they had none of my usual vintage dry so it's Henry's signature cider instead.
The doctors receptionist has managed to misplace my blood test results from the other day Too late to get another test as I was supposed to take it with me to the urologist appointment on Tuesday

The birds are so used to us they rarely bother even if we're sitting outside, its quite relaxing watching them. House Sparrows, Tree Sparrows, various T1ts, Greenfinches, Goldfinches, Chaffinches, Bullfinches, Siskins, the Woodpeckers are a bit wary but they're coming round as well. Add to that we get field mice in the evening picking up the dropped seeds. As I write this Mrs (or Mr) Woodpecker is on one of the feeders, why get a migraine headbutting a tree when there's free food .

Slept about two hours on and off last night. A cooler breeze has just started, so I'll catch up on nods during the day! A croissant and coffee might perk me up! Have a good 'un.

It was indeed a rather uncomfortable nights sleep!
We have air conditioning at home but it's a toss up between heat or noise from the aircon keeping you awake

It's a much more pleasant temperature this morning thankfully

Morning all
Slept surprisingly well last night.. Today sees 20c overcast and drizzle in the air.
Not much on today other than watching BSB on Eurosport, and looking forward to a lovely 30 day aged rump steak for dinner this evening.
