We’ve been here almost 2 years and finally the marina has got its CCTV sorted.
We overheard The Boss and The Guy discussing the matter, sites for the cameras, and cost.
Ouch. Wish Hubby had been asked.
For security reasons obviously I am not going to say where the cameras are.
Anyway, in the pouring rain, The Guy was digging a hole to plant a post upon which to mount a camera.
Two days later, all was in position and connected up, so the rain felt obliged to stop.
There had to be a shuffle in the car park to align the view correctly, some knit one purl one of dangling wires to overhead cables to make it all look tidy, and a bit of heavy duty pruning to a rampant bush which wanted to hog the entire show as The Star Attraction.
The Boss is not happy.
Two pigeons have built a nest on top of one of the cameras.
We have seen one taking in ‘nesting materials’ for an extension or attic room, so obviously they are planning on having a big family.
What makes it even more amusing (to us, oh and everyone else here except The Boss) is that their des res has Central Heating (the camera generates heat) and Colour TV (the birds just have to bend forward and they fill the lens).
They also have a sun roof, manicured lawns (the maintenance man has recently cut the grass), a pool (the marina of course) and exclusive privacy (he can’t get at them!).
We think their carpets and microwave are being delivered next week.
And some environmental regulation will prevent anyone from discouraging the pigeons? (who are spreading the word about their good luck to extended family)
Thanks for the chuckles
Hooray for the pigeons! Someone should have given this project a little more “think” time.
High rise block maybe?
Pigeons: at home anywhere. These ones have found a particularly inviting home, though!
Oh yeah! 😀
Birds aren’t stupid. Free heat, free food, privacy – sounds good to me.
Naturally! It is funny though.
