She's back - HURRAH!

After 3-4 weeks absence, little Hoppity was back in the garden yesterday morning (with Freaky) and a little sparrow that seems to follow her about! I was so pleased to see her. Her tail still hasn't grown yet but she seems plump and healthy :)

You can see the little sparrow to the left of the birdtable sharing the goodies.

Thanks Suey, don't know if you know the story - this little blackbird had a damaged leg. The foot has dropped off now but she has still managed to raise a brood. I was really glad to see her again :)

Cracking pic G & a great story. We get 3-4 blackbirds - 2 male, 2 female back and fore and one female in particular always jumping round on front lawn. She has a broken tail feather by look of it but I sit for ages watching her! The birds out the back garden are a joy when you're sat out there on a warm evening or sunny day.

Lovely to see Hoppity back and looking well. She must have enjoyed her rest. I bet Freakie knew where she was hidden. Our blackbird is moulting too. He was trying to sunbath but the sun kept going behind clouds. He spent a whole half hour posing in strange positions with an open beak and all fluffed up. Posted some pics of him today. Not as good as Hoppity's portrait.
