The Lonely Chick

I’ve recently read posts about not interfering with Nature should you find an ‘abandoned’ baby bird, another about a clutch of 4 robins, and have been watching a young blackbird here that has just got its tail feathers and is being fed by Mum.
It reminded me of this, one of my very early posts, and I thought it worth a reblog.
As an aside, Hubby has just opened a fortune cookie (he ate it), and the message inside reads ‘Don’t give up, the beginning i always the hardest’.
How apt for this, and my previous post!


I like watching the birds and take part in the annual RSPB Bird Watch every January. From the comfort of my chair in the lounge, I have a good view of the garden and for an hour make a note of the feathered visitors that come and go. I then enter my figures onto the RSPB website to be included in thousands of others. We get a fair variety including yellowhammers, robins, great tits, blue tits, coal tits, thrushes, wrens, green finches, chaffinches, goldfinches, sparrows, doves, pigeons, starlings, owls, even a woodpecker on a couple of occasions, and a duck! Obviously not all have been included in my report when I submitted it.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
