Our parks and gardens are starting to colour up; snowdrops, crocii, daffodil buds and hyacinths. There are shoots on the shrubs that have been leafless since autumn. I glanced out of the window this morning and the tree was full of goldfinches. I grabbed my camera and got a very poor picture. Here it is:
If you look closely you’ll see two of them. I reached for my other camera but they must have noticed my movements close to the window, and by the time the lens cap was off, they had flown away.
It seemed a bit unfair. MasterB was watching them from the sill and they didn’t flap a wing. Yet who out of the pair of us would be more likely to attack?
Now to another issue. I am not on WordPress a great deal at the moment, and I rely on Reader to help me get up to speed with some of may favourite pages. Has anyone else found Reader full of posts by people they haven’t heard of? People who post prolifically? Post after post after post by people you haven’t signed up to folow and don’t want to follow? I even had some porn in Reader the other day. I confess I give up after a while. Time is hort and precious. It seems weird. WordPress is so good at spotting spam comments, so how does this get through their filters? Can anyone suggest what to do?
