Around 11 the blackbird couple arrive.

The robins are ever present and have already mated I think.

Closer to 1 finch looking things are sussing out the eaves for a gaff.

The Starlings are taking up their annual spot in the drainpipe.

4-6pm The wren is in some alliance with the rat. He seems to have a rat song that he sings when the rat is in town. He sings with his whole body its hilarious.

Something bigger crapped up the back.

I filled in the hole in the wall and moved a decent chair in here. Also tidied the 3 square metres visible on camera.

Anyone got good camera over IP advice?
a lot of my job is programming IP cameras.
Im not sure what advice you’re looking for

edit: ah not the same IP camera programming we are talking about But you’re sorted anyway

More of this please

I love wrens. Their scientific name is Troglodyte Troglodyte , which seems a little unfair and unimaginative

The wren is in a bit of a territory war for a pile of wood that I'm going to remove this weekend anyways.

I have been building a new wren sanctuary further up the back.

Most of this wood is gone, the wren has found other places to shout about food and sex from already. Starlings are nesting more or less above my desk here (recent video on fb was that).

Blackbird couple are to me the nicest of the lot. They are forever exploring together and one will climb and hop into some fun bit of thicket and the other will follow trying to find cooler places to hop about on. The rat has been successfully moved away from the house.

The robin is less social than last year.

1 outdoor ruhbard is going great, no sign of the spuds yet.

I've built five shelves in 4 weeks, probably gonna cut down on that soon and move to more nerd based stuff.

Cycling 4k on the road bike is kinda shit.

Isolate - from latin 'insula' - meaning island. To isolate, to insulate, both the same word in origin, and effectively meaning to literally make an island.

One of the magpies was taking the piss out of the fox about a week ago. I'm not sure what happened in between but said magpie seems to have fucked one of their wings now. Spotted them hobbling about up the back. I was initially like 'ok nature' suspecting the fox would be back for it soon enough.

Anyways here we are a week later and the magpie seems to be carving out an existence at shoulder to waist level up the back, while its partner keeps watch in the tree as lookout. Starting to consider feeding it. It eventually eating my eyes would be very 2020 though.
