Another day over. The weekend always seems to go by so fast. Spotted three Sparrow Hawks hovering over the back of our garden yesterday, probably spying on some mice in the fields or something bigger in the woods. Sometime last week one even swooped into our garden, did a swing around the bird table, a backward flip up through next doors apple tree and was gone in a flash! Whether it grabbed a blue tit or a sparrow on it's way, I didn't see , it was so fast! Today, another Sparrow Hawk, dived in from nowhere, but this time hit the fence and somersaulted backwards across the lawn, then, a little dazed but still with the ease of a jump jet fighter plane, shot straight back into the blue sky, and was gone. Definitely not the kind of bird I thought would be visiting my bird table! Finished another card today but am still behind. I couldn't decide if it needed a blue ribbon or not then was thinking entering him into a blog challenge but chickened out! Still haven't worked out how to do the links, but I'm sure I'll soon get there one day! Although hubby says, if my navigation of the internal workings of my blog-site is anything as bad as my map reading...it'll be sometime never!!
