RSPB Big Birdwatching Weekend and Australian Open

Lucas has been taking part in the RSPB Big Birdwatching Weekend and so far he has seen 2 blackbirds, 1 blue tit, 1 chaffinch, 1 dunnock, 6 house sparrows, 1 long-tailed tit, 5 magpies, 4 wood pigeons, a land gull, a feral pigeon, a thrush, a jackdaw and a chicken (it had escaped from a garden up the road) in our garden.  Who would have thought we had so many birds in a household that has 2 cats (proof they are the laziest creatures ever).

I am currently watching the final of the Australian and what a final it is.  Such unbelievable tennis and both Nadal and Djokovic are playing out of their skins.  It is hard to call who will win but what fantastic entertainment for us viewers.

Entered the 100-word short story competition run by the Readers Digest with an edited down version of my flash fiction 'First Date' the other day, so fingers crossed.

  1. I can't believe how many birds he's managed to spot and love the escaped chicken! Well done on getting your story entered into the RD compo and fingers crossed for you! Sadly I missed the tennis :(
