I caught Micky sitting on the top of the old apple tree stump yesterday. Although he looks a sweetie, this is the best vantage point for him to survey the garden in the hope that some unsuspecting little birdie comes along that he can eat for his dinner.
He still comes to visit from number 8 almost every day, but just lately he has started to turn his nose up at the food on offer. At first he would eat anything I put down, but now, if it isn't to his liking it's one sniff and off he goes in search of something better.
The two little girls at number 8 gave me a home made Christmas card, so now I am going to print this photo off and put it through their door. They will like that.
