Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

What a lovely picture Hickey! You can catch badgers running round the streets here if you go out at crack of dawn on dustbin day.They raid all the sacks left out - I have never had a camera handy when I've seen them.

That 60 year old flamingo is not looking 60 years old! Go flamingo! :luv:

If I had to go out armed with a camera ahead of bin collection day to capture badgers I happily would, but not sure I would succeed. I think I'd be more likely to catch a fox round these parrrrrts, although haven't heard or seen one yet.

I love your flamingo. I have some flamingo pics, but they weren't doing anything very interesting :)

Avocet chick is very sweet too.
