Taking time off from my scare crow duties I found a bird going grey just like me. Unfortunately in my case it is a decline in virility and in his an increase as breeding nears.
Cormorants are getting more common on patch with these four over flying my house on Saturday last. Probably Big Waters birds heading out to the new fishing ponds that have been created north of Ponteland.
I bet the anglers are pleased as the birds are dab hands at fishing!
