Buckets of rain

Such a lot of rain!  Bezukhov & Lennie surveyed it all…

Lennie & the Seagull

It is rare, but now & then we see seagulls ‘out the back’.  I posted once before (click here) about a particularly scary encounter.  Each time the seagulls appear, all birds are scared & immediately rush to the safety of a cage & go quiet for some time.  I do not blame them for their seeming cowardice.  When the seagulls swoop past the window they do look menacing & fierce.

I managed to capture some photos from a recent seagull visit.  You can see in the first photo, that a very brave Lennie Dennie, is still on the window perch (far left), skinny with shock, but mesmerised by the sight.

 

January brought the snow again

Just like last year, this January we had some snow.  It was not much & what there was melted quickly.  It was Perry & Lennie’s first experience of snow & they went over to the window perches to investigate, as did Bezukhov.

 

 

It’s snowing leaves!

As usual, we have had all sorts of weather here.  It has turned cold but no snow yet in these parts.

However, the other week it looked like it was snowing.  The ground outside the back was covered in leaves & the wind was blowing hard, whipping up the leaves & blowing more off the (few) trees.  Bezukhov & Dalai were mesmerised by the sight.  I was filming Bezukhov on the playgym (a rare visit there) when he suddenly looked surprised & when I panned to the window, where he was looking, I saw all the falling “snow”.

 

Dalai went over to the window perch to investigate further.

 

 

 

Stormy Weather

We had some very heavy, black clouds the other day.  Dalai & Bezukhov watched them from the window perch & waited for the inevitable rain:

Footie Fan

Who knew that Bezukhov was a fan of football?!

 

 

January brings the snow

January brings the snow,
makes our feet and feathers glow. 1

 

 

Two weeks ago we had some snow.  It did not stay long but I managed to get some photos of Bezukhov & Phineas admiring it.

Red sky at night…

A Windy Day

We have had some windy weather lately.  Here are Bezukhov & Phineas investigating at the window perch:
