        Oh…look at her walking around-isn’t she clever ? I bet that Grandpa Gezza’s proud of the new addition to the family.

        I have just been sweeping the leaves that were all that fell in our ‘storm’ and carrying them to the compost bin on an old dustbin lid. A thrush didn’t hear me coming until I was near enough to have touched her-then she turned, jumped and flew away. What pretty birds they are.

          Yes she is clever. Sweetie and Aspen don’t mind Pickles walking about in that little clearing while I’m videoing, but on the actual clip you can hear the soft, short whimpery sound he made when he spotted me, telling her to go and hide, & when he does this, Pickles does. It’s an innate reaction I think.

        Pickles is growing fast Possum. I’ve been watching the nest for a couple of weeks & first saw pooklet on 4 January (I’ll email you a fuzzy clip I took when I whipped my 3G out of my pocket). It was as small as a hedge-sparrow & could only stumble around. In 3 days Pickles has got fluffy and is already the size of a house-sparrow. She’s getting well fed by all 3 of her parents. Bluey is the main caregiver, interestingly.

        Best time to see Pickles is between 8 and 9am, when the 3 pooks all come up to the fence, get handfuls of wheat from me, eat some greens (grass and creeper roots), and then go straight down to the play area to feed it & replace the nest bedding. Pickles gets to run around a bit then.

        This morning all three of them were attending to the morning feed and bedding change, but as soon as it’s done they get Pickles under cover behind the bushes again.
