On Tuesday (6th) I filled and hung the feeders for the birds
in the old apple tree above George's head.
Because we're moored in a slightly different place the tree's a bit further away and can't be so easily seen from the boat, but I'm sure the birds will enjoy the offerings over winter even if I don't manage to catch them all with my camera!
I was sitting on the deck with my camera attempting to get a picture of the Red Kites circling overhead but instead got a Boeing 787 Dreamliner in the pretty blue livery of China Southern instead.
This is the same type of aircraft that we will fly home from Perth to Heathrow in March 2019 ... it's getting closer now!
First visit ... looks like a coal tit ... to the coconut shell filled with all sorts of bird treats
Rain is in the forecast today and we're waiting for another delivery
2:15 and here he comes ...
a half load of lovely dry fire wood logs
Half an hour later and they're all (sort of) stacked on the bow deck ready for use. There's not so much room there as there was last year with George needing to access his 'spin' bike each morning.
An hour or so later the rain is imminent ... we just hope that it raises the river levels somewhat.
