A Pair of Missisiss

Throughout this month there’s been a couple of daily visitors to the Hazey Daze Back Garden Bird Cafe.

Mrs Brenda Blackcap and Mrs Bethyl Blackbird.

A plump pair of lovely ladies (and getting plumper)


Long Tailed Tits

Long Tailed Tits.

Three times this winter the garden has been blessed with a fleeting visitation from these fairytale tweeties.

Here is a pic of Long Tailed Tit (enough to warm the sugar in every great grannies teacup)

Say “Long Tailed Tits”. And then listen to your heart go “Awwwwww”.

Easy winner of the Cutest Birds in The World Award.

A Curious Orange-Gah

I appolgise in advance for this next post.

There will follow a temporary suspension of this blogs usual fixation with everything feathery, fluffy, charming, and cute.

Normal Niceness Service will be resumed forthwith, I promise.

This is a sort of anti-tribute to Mark E Smith of The Fall who died last week.
(Anti, because he was that way inclined)

A Curious-Ah Orange-GAH

I were a right crabby bastard me
Never took yes for an answer

The E in me name = sumwhere where the sun don’t shine.

I could rock a jumper like-ah no other-Err
Old git to cheeky imp to nasty fooker
With one swig of this bottle.

Don’t give me that phoney hero-worship-ah
I’m NOT having it
Any of it.

I spit in yer sanity
I knacker yer normal
I piss on yer raving reasonable-AH

Do I give a fook? Do I fook
I’m no bollock munching hypocritical shite

I made something of meself.
You didn’t have to like it
I never liked it. Liked like.
Better not to like me. Like me.

Go and grab sum other arseholes tits
I’m NOT fookin having it
Any of it.

I was an Odious-Ah


Now fook off!……the lot of yers…..

Leave me in, er, peace……. AAAAH!

Sunday Swans on Institute Beach

Up early on a bright winter morning. Off to our favourite place: Institute Beach.

Would we see the Grey Heron? (No)
Would we see the Little Egret? (Yes) (but No – it didn’t stay)
Would we see Cormorants? (Yes) and Shags? (Yes)
Would we see the Kingfisher? (Yes. It flashed by, far too quick to get a camera on)
Would we see the Seal (No) or the second Seal (No)

But what we did see, most delightfully, were these 2 juvenile cygnets

They could be brothers. They could be sisters.

Simply floating around in the sea as easy as you like.

When it comes to bringing peace to Sunday mornings, these two swans seem to have it sussed.
