Hullo All

After a couple of computerless weeks I'm now back on line.  No it wasn't 
the YK2 bug.

Some Bar-shouldered Doves at our feeding tray are very aggressive, but 
not only toward their own kind or the much smaller Peaceful Doves.  They 
will pick finches up by the nape feathers and fling them off the tray.

Gribble the Bush Stone-curlew is doing fine despite once falling down the 
stairs and occasionally on his face.  He seems to forget that he has 
these long legs between his body and the ground.  Then there was the time 
Sarah the dog decided to wash him, grinding the protesting bird into the 
dirt as she vigorously applied her tongue. 

I hope everybody enjoyed their fireworks and that all your computers
