Spending a few minutes away from my work computer by watching 2 Robins flitting about in the back garden. Looks like they're building a nest in next doors connifer hedge.

Very satisfying Steve. We live in a flat 3rd floor with a balcony. Pauline puts out food & we have at times 6 sparrows tucking in.

 

Below us is a coffee house which attracts sparrows. They walk around the outside tables, between people's feet, playing dustbin men. In the trees opposite, about 6:00 pm, the cacophony as they sing, coming from probably about a 100 sparrows, is incredible.

Tell me about it Vince. Sure they all come from Guernsey 🤣

 Pauline puts out this food for the sparrows.

 

Suddenly at about 5:00am a right messy noise darned seagull has arrived. Bang bang around the balcony knock on the window the wretch just looks at you. Open window wide & the thing panics & only just clears the balcony handrail.

 

Brilliant here Vince just 13 Covid19 cases out of 110,000 population

We enjoy feeding the Red Kites in our back garden. Wonderful, majestic birds.

 

And the slightly smaller ones, of course...

Vince we have a special. He is called Roger.

 

Below our flat we have Morrisons a mini supermarket. The entrance has two auto doors.

Roger the seagull stalks outside the shop. Some one goes in & Roger the seagull follows in.

 

Darned hilarious he goes over to the snack bar jumps up on the first shelf. Picks out a packet of sandwiches & calmly walks back out.

The lady who works our apartments post office receiving area actually vidoed him doing his act. I have seen him perform.

 

Roger then goes to the other side of the road & attacks the sandwich packet. No other seagull attempts to join as he is a very aggressive type.

Could be Vince. Just keep producing them. Darn things keeping visitng our balcony early morning for the sparrows food.

 

Chatted to one seagull, Matilda, she said she had flown all the way from Guernsey. Gave her a right dressing down told her to buzz off back .Told her to frequent Vince's backyard as he had better gourmet & more succulent food.  🦅

Finally closing up the box after many hours of work.

spacer.pngHalfway through making this parlor guitar in memory of a dear friend of mine. Making this guitar has brought catharsis and joy in the face of devastating loss.

spacer.pngIt's Martin style X bracing, alpine spruce top, Brazilian rosewood back and sides with a heavily inlaid fretboard.

That guitar is a thing of beauty, @Jered, particularly the fretboard. I look forward to seeing the finished article.
