Nuthatch building

The nuthatch has made great progress in the construction work in the front door.
He has made the entrance a bit smaller, which may prevent intruders to come inside.
However I don't know exactly why they are doing this.
It is an enormous work...flying to and fro to get the mud from the wood...
It takes a lot of patience and endurance.

Blue-tits making a nest

The blue-tits have been very busy.
A nest is build right close to my window, so that I have a perfect view on the building progress.
Its nice to see how they use different building materials.
Every time they first perch in the wisteria, and then fly into the nestbox.
By doing so, I can see all the materials they bring in.

The last thing they brought in today were feathers.
So I think the building of the nest is almost done.

Flapp 7

(continuing story Flapp)

The next day, Flapp said angrily: 'Enough is enough!
Now I am the Boss'.
He took a piece of string and fixed his ears together,
so that they were unable to move and would nicely sit up.
The bad part was that after a while his ears hurt terribly, sitting up so straight and tight.
So he finally unknotted his ears again.

Flapp 6

(continuing story Flapp)

Very discouraged and soaked by the rain, Flapp decided to go back home.
He was drooping on the outside and drooping inside.

Flapp 5

(continuing story Flapp)

Suddenly Flapp stopped in the middle of the raining downpour.
'I hate you ears!
I want you to listen now and sit still'! he commanded very angry.
Immediately his ears obeyed, drooped and sat still.

Flapp 4

(continuing story Flapp)

It started raining much more, like a heavy downpour.
Flapp ran faster, as fast as he could.
His ears happily danced and twirled around his head to the left and right,
going here and there.
Which looked very funny but Flapp became very angry.

The whole day, I hear the nuthatch singing and tweeting his beautiful high-pitched singing.
Pfiieeeeew PfieeeuwPhieeeeuw!
Sometimes I think I hear my sisters ringtone, but no, this is definitely the nuthatch realtime.
Meanwhile he is building on the house, making the door smaller.
and in between he is furnishing the house with...yea...I don't exactly what it is going to be, those little brick stones?

singing and twittering robins

I heard a robin singing and another twittering.
I wondered if I could catch a glance of the two.
A moment later I saw the twittering one, perched on a plant stick.
A few moments later I saw the singing one in a tree.
The singing one was One eye!

Flapp 3

(continuing story Flapp)

Suddenly there were black clouds everywhere.
A moment later it was raining.
Flapp started to run as fast as he could.
His ears, instead of flip-flapping, were jumping and dancing around, going here and there.
Not knowing which turn to make.

Flapp 2

(continuing story Flapp)

Flapp decides to go out for a walk.
Its a nice sunny day and he loves to go out.
When he is walking, his ears are always
flapping up and down around his head, going this and that way.

Flapp 1

Flapp is sitting in his favourite chair, having his breakfast.

He is named Flapp, because of his very long drooping ears.
He is pondering what to do.

Flower water

The Fluff thinks flower water is much more yummy than just pure water.
So everyday he is drinking the water with anemone-juice.

Fiery flames

Fiery flames are out all over the place!
Spring is announcing that it is on its way!
