The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of Ģ750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

We have always called these little striped things humbugs, blowed if I can remember their proper name.

Another reason I donīt want magpies building in the tree, I donīt want them to frighten all these little birds away.

I donīt want to start a new thread about birds and wild life so will just add to this one.

I think a bird, or birds, have taken a liking to the matting outside the garage front door.

Their nests will be nicely coloured this year! I put my cut hair out so they'll all be grey round here!

Oh how lovely, I have the door open to the garden and could here a green finch calling, he was hopping round every side of the feed bottle and then calling as if to say he couldnīt get a seed out, so I went and gave the holes a poke and a shake and within minutes he was back with a friend happily eating.

I had this visitor yesterday for a few minutes, I wonder if it was eyeing the Magpie nest because that just under where it sat.

Taken through the kitchen window into the light.
Itīs a kestrel by the way.
