RED KITE AND PARAKEETS BATTLE ABOVE
THE ROBIN CAME TO VISIT AGAIN
Working in the garden yesterday afternoon I was aware of a lot of parakeets squawking. I looked up into the skies and saw this (then rushed inside to get my camera, hoping that they would still be there when I came out!).
Eighteen parakeets were crowding round the red kite and trying to chase it off! They got quite close to it, but didn’t seem to actually make contact.
I’m sure the robin can detect the sound of a spade in the earth! I was finishing off working on the path and I had hardly started before the little robin was there, standing on the grass about five feet away from me. He stood and watched for a while then hopped onto a flower pot, keeping his beady eye on me, and then on to the birdbath where he had a little splash around before flying off.
