Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching 2009
Made my own fat ball yesterday... it's been setting in the fridge overnight and I'll put it out when I get home. Full of fat, gammon rind (sliced to caterpillar size) and sunflower seeds, it'll give the robin and the blackbirds something to do.

Talking of the blackbird, I was standing within arms reach of the female yesterday afternoon - a magical moment. She just looked at me, flicked her tail and hopped off the fence with no sign of alarm.
