I have a silly number of bird photos and I don't think it's fair to upload them to my Inky Fingers Blog, where people expert stamped artwork. Hence the reason for this Blog, in which I can feel free to upload whatever I like. This was our favourite blackbird, who used to sit on the garage steps, sleeping or sunbathing whilst John was inside. One of his legs wouldn't bend and I made a point of looking after him, so eventually he became almost tame, coming when called and just sitting in the plantpot by the door. He'd even come to greet John's car as he arrived home!
Sadly, he disappeared around February 2009, after I'd seen him with a withered foot. I've really, REALLY missed him.
