Welcome to the round up of posts on Smorgasbord that you might have missed this week.
Despite being a momentous week in many ways around the world,very little has been going on in our neck of the woods as our lockdown continues until February 1st. The children here in Ireland are meant to go back to school on 31st of January but I expect that might change as the numbers are still very concerning. They were over 8000 two weeks ago and still at 2,000 + a day.. for a population of just under 5 million it is not good. Still not sure what is happening with vaccines for our age group yet but no doubt they will filter through eventually.
It is however a cold, frosty but sunny day which cheers things up and I have spent some time in the garden repairing our homemade bird feeder. Designed to limit access by the crows (I don’t mind them having a mouthful but they tend to descend as a mob, scaring off the other birds and eating the lot).. Anyway, the crows spend a great deal of time thwarting my efforts and had removed some of the sticks on the outside of the pyramid by undoing the string holding them… If I didn’t find them so amusing….
I also had to break the ice on the two watering holes.. one is a meter square former seed box which is a favourite with the starlings who dive in and have a bath whatever the weather and sometimes there are up to 15 or 16 carrying out the ablutions with much joy.
There are often four or five in the smaller bath which requires constant fill ups in the summer as they splash around having fun.
Not having a dog at the moment, these and the sparrows, tits and the doves are my babies and they have certainly given us much pleasure during lockdown…
Anyway, I hope your week has been good and thank you for visiting today… also my thanks to William Price King (The Breakfast Show), Debby Gies (first relationship column 2021) and Carol Taylor (brand new column, Carol’s Green Kitchen) for their ongoing contributions and I hope you will pop into their posts to enjoy..
