Hi Primetme, I seem to be the only bloke in here so I am so glad another male member has joined the throng. THRONG? that makes two of us males. What are your interests and what is your ability? I like things that make me laugh and due to a bad fall I cannot walk. WELL, I can manage short distances on crutches. Listen Primetime, I am not looking for sympathy, I want someone to talk to. I'm desperate for someone to talk to. Tell me, whereabouts in the country are you from. I live in South Yorkshire, and have a back garden full of wild life. That's the Gas, Electric, Water Board all demanding payment grin. Enough for now. Look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome to the new people and nice to see you again bumblebee123. There are definitely a couple of fellas on the forum. Just keep an eye out. Your garden sounds interesting. I know you have bird feeders and wondering what they are attracting at the moment. Here in the suburbs I get lots of wood pigeon and magpie and our own very territorial robin. Great tits are calling all the time now and we do get occasional more exciting visitors but not often. You say you like to laugh. Have you looked at the malapropism (with some spoonerisms) thread? Some are really funny. Just explore and you might run into those elusive fellow males. If not, you'll come across some interesting discussions anyway.

bumblebee123 Tue 28-Mar-17 08:38:10

Bellanonna, Here are some of the birds we attract.
Blackbirds, magpies, great tits, blue tits, dunnocks, bullfinches, jackdaws, jays, chaffinch, robins, long tailed tits, woodpeckers, crows, collared doves, rock doves, stock doves, pigeons, greenfinches, plus unwelcome visitors like hawks, and this last week, a raven. he really is a big fella. I've missed some out but I mustn't forget to mention the squirrels. They are so much fun to watch. I spend hours each day watching them. Must try and get some photos. Strangely enough, we do not get any sparrows.

bumblebee123 Tue 28-Mar-17 09:05:55

Where do I find the mala whatsit thread?

Bellanonna Tue 28-Mar-17 09:08:29

Wow, that's quite a list Bumblebee. No, I haven't had sparrows for a while either. Numbers have been greatly reduced. Quite sad. Unlike you I don't enjoy the squirrel visitors as they nick the bird food. Although, as I said before, I don't get too many song birds but am watching a pair of blackbirds in the garden at the moment. Love is in the air.
