Hi gill....competition going well. Have just told a couple of friends and they are going to vote too Seen that drone fly with 84 ?

gillblair said:

thanks jane...i know seen that one as well...hes the only one ahead of me in all nine centres...but he has been on 84 for three days now, think he must have asked a lot of people to vote and now ran out...so hopefully i can catch him up now...was 48 behind now only 27 so closing on him...what do think about pm members?

gillblair said:

ill do that jane..think ive had a few neutral voters...ill copy and paste the links to some of the pics directly into their inbox so they dont have to scroll through all the pics to find mine..i know it sounds a bit desperate but im becoming quite obsessed with catching drone fly...ha ha...

Belated Congratulations Gill - how did I miss your 13th Dec announcement? Little robin dancing for joy too! You certainly have given everyone a lot of pleasure with your beautiful photos.
Absolutely freezing here today, birds have diminished in number very noticeably. We had a power cut this morning so got to understand how they feel out in the cold. No hot drinks till the power came on again for us but their water freezes as soon as we fill the bird baths.
Hope the next competition brings you success again!
