Being consciously aware of the slide from late summer into early autumn gives me real pleasure.

nemo75 - 09 Sep 2021 14:49:09 (#1922 of 2017)

Makes me anxious.

Dubris - 09 Sep 2021 13:55:35 (#1923 of 2017)

If you will insist on dressing entirely in clothes sewn from fresh green leaves then what do you expect?

nemo75 - 09 Sep 2021 15:00:13 (#1924 of 2017)

Oh Dubs. You said you wouldn’t say.

I enjoy the slide from summer into autumn when there's been a noticeable summer. This year not so much.

I've just stuck my head out of the sitting room window to try and identify the source of a strange crunching sound (which in my head was already plagues of rats eating their way through the skirting boards).

There was a parakeet, nonchalantly upside-down on the bargeboarding in the eaves, scraping off paint with its beak. The little green BASTARD.

C […] U […]



I wonder what it’s writing?

#1924 - But think of the clusters of ripening berries, Nature's bounty.

Bangkok Chicken noodle salad with lime & sriracha dressing.

I am jealous of your parakeet.

Dubris - 09 Sep 2021 15:10:02 (#1930 of 2017)

I think HelenD would gladly include the parakeet as an ingredient in a noodle salad.

nemo75 - 09 Sep 2021 16:10:11 (#1931 of 2017)

They sound like squeaky dog toys.

Or a throttled muppet.

Lagopus - 09 Sep 2021 16:17:22 (#1932 of 2017)

I'd never even heard of sriracha until a fortnight ago and now the bastard stuff seems to be following me around like a vengeful ghost.

Catspyjamas17 - 09 Sep 2021 16:38:54 (#1933 of 2017)

A tasty one.

helenskywalker - 09 Sep 2021 16:42:31 (#1934 of 2017)

Very.

Ginmonkey - 09 Sep 2021 16:50:24 (#1935 of 2017)

I was walking in our local woods this week and the parakeets were very very noisy.

We often get squirrel/ parakeet battles - that is a cacophony of squeaking.

FleurDuMal - 09 Sep 2021 17:35:47 (#1936 of 2017)

We don’t have parakeets oop north.

<moops >

Avonlea - 09 Sep 2021 17:38:10 (#1937 of 2017)

We have a colony living in the tree behind our house. They are very noisy, and quite fighty, but lovely to see in flight.

SorrellA - 09 Sep 2021 17:39:15 (#1938 of 2017)

They're a menace, I would gladly send ours up to Fleur. They were destroying a wooden steeple near here by pecking it and they make a godawful racket.

Lagopus - 09 Sep 2021 17:59:19 (#1939 of 2017)

I was delighted to see a Little Egret oop north t'other day. And many Little Gulls. Still failed to get anyone much bothered about the Little Gulls, despite them being one of our rarest birds.

Dubris - 09 Sep 2021 17:03:20 (#1940 of 2017)

How would I recognise a little gull?
