I haven’t been totally without distraction whilst chained to my desk.
A few years back we bought one of those bird feeders that can be stuck to glass. It was originally intended for my mother’s room at her nursing home, so that she could watch the birds in close proximity without getting up from her chair. Unfortunately when we came to fit the feeder a safety catch prevented the window from opening far enough to get the box through. The plan had to be abandoned and the feeder found its way on to our kitchen window instead.
All went well for a couple of days. A robin found the box and I enjoyed watching his antics whilst I was cooking a meal.
But then it had to happen didn’t it..
Yes, I can see you..
With the inevitable result
Anyhow, Mike has now repaired it and we’ve put it somewhere I’m pretty sure Mr Nutkins can’t possibly reach..
..my first floor study window
These must be the most laid back shots I’ve ever taken.
Camera on tripod with the cable shutter release placed next to my keyboard.
Whenever there was rustling from the box I just moved my hand ever so slightly and pressed the release..
A quick reminder to register for the Great British Birdwatch. It’s this weekend!
