A spot of Bird Watching
AFTER WATCHING our neighbouring seagulls and their new chicks for the past few weeks or so from the distance of our bedroom window, me and my partner decided we wanted to get a closer look so we popped down to the shop and purchased a National Geographic telescope with variable zoom options. The detail is absolutely amazing, it's like watching our very own nature programme. The mother is constantly back and forth regurgitating its stomach contents to feed the 3 hungry little chicks who seem to have inexhaustible appetites, one of the chicks is smaller than the other two which poses questions to us whether it will survive full term to flight and be able to fend for itself. I shall let you know how they get on.
