    Well there I was by the back door making a cup of tea for Ann this morning, watching the linnets and great tits having a good feed on the newly replenished fat balls.Then a noisy family of Sheps (Starlings)came down bullying there way onto the fat balls :Angry: I decided to go out and chase them off but just as I started to walk towards them ZOOM the perpetrator came flying and hopping,shooting through the trees grabbing a young sheppy and dropping onto the lawn.This caused such a commotion with the adult sheps squawking and flying at the lady trying to get her to loosen her grip -no chance-:BigGrin:After five mins they decided to leave her to her spoils and then the deed was done :Eek!: Once left alone she promptly decide it was safe for the kill then after another few mins took off with her prize,no doubt to feed her young.

    By my standards Jim, that lawn is very neat and manicured. :Blush:

    One advantage of being a fulltimer. I have the biggest garden in the world and I have thousands of gardeners to keep it nice for me:Rofl1::Rofl1:
