As many of my readers know we feed the birds in our garden. We have a variety of bird feeders and in different areas of the garden.
Outside the kitchen window there is a wooden framework we inherited when we moved here.
On our kitchen window sill are pots of orchids, one of my hobbies, but they do create a 'bird hide' so you can creep up and take a quick photo.
But it isnt often, in fact never witnessed before a pheasant teetering on said wooden framework and chasing off a magpie while she tucks in.
Even more amazing was this male pheasant who thought, "I'll try that."
And had a go at the peanuts!
Kite Buggy Racing. The Scottish Power Kite Association Buggy race was on this weekend at Fraserburgh Beach.
The plan is not to get your kites tangled with 'im or her next door.
A new sport on me and not one I could get that excited about to be honest.
Fraserburgh also hosts the surfing championships, now that I do like. Having, many years ago, been a surfer. But sitting almost on the ground and hanging on to a kite - well no.
My sport this afternoon was, as per usual, down the shed opera full blast and painting grass..... the Puffins sitting on said grass, okay, but as with the Kite Buggys, I yawn when it comes to painting grass.
