More Twitching

I should have done Birdwatch this morning. In addition to all the birds I saw over the weekend we've had a blue tit and a couple of starlings. The starlings are messy eaters. They stab at the food with their rapier beaks and the crumbs fly everywhere.  It makes me think of a glove puppet mumbling a dry biscuit.  The male blackbird hops around the base of the table, picking up the debris.
