So romantic until…..
We came along!
This afternoon hubby and I spent a couple of hours tucked away in a bird hide.Posted 7 years ago
As we approached we realised someone had put out some fairy lights on an ajoining Christmas tree and some really big festive outdoor candles. Then as we opened the door there were tea lights and pretty hearts, mmm must be a party later tonight. Very unusual place to hold one we thought.
As the afternoon went on hubby has a bit of wind (well A lot actually) from too much beer and rich food from the night before. This horrible smell had overpowered the delicate perfume of the tea lights.
As we are about to leave at dusk, a lovely young chap arrives with a bottle of champagne and goblets. He tells us that he’s the local farmer and is about to propose to his girlfriend, in the next half an hour.
We wished him well and ran away giggling because the smell was awful, even with the hide shutter up it had lingered.

You should really have gone back with some Febreeze.Posted 7 years ago
Funny but I thought you were going to catch them in the act.Posted 7 years ago
Guessing that the smell of bird droppings, mr bunnyhop’s own special manly musk, febreeze and the perfumed tea candles really would have her running for the hills 🙂Posted 7 years ago

thats it blame your husband.shame on youPosted 7 years ago
See it as doing her a favour. I mean, if she says yes she’s going to have to get used to it anyway…Posted 7 years ago
Sounds fowl. Fingers crossed the young amore got a chance to see a Great Tit later on or even a Booby. All rather depends on whether she’s a gamebird or not. But the less said about Swallows the better.Posted 7 years agomcmoonter wrote:

Oh that’s horrible – poor bloke! Last 2 posts did make me larf though 😀Posted 7 years ago
If she runs fit the hills then they’re not a perfect match.
Unlike you two.
I’m not suggesting you fart like your hubby, but if you tolerate it. Well that’s true love, that is…
BTW. What wildlife did you spot?Posted 7 years ago
Bunnyhop decided that birdwatching wasn’t for them after all…Posted 7 years ago
BTW. What wildlife did you spot?
very quiet day at the hide in truth, although if he’d spent all day ferrying the various candles and things (he’d used a wheel barrow to bring a three foot high cheminea buerner down the path!) it’s not surprising that the wildlife would have been wary.
In terms of what we did see – blue tits, great tits, coal tits, robins, long tailed tits, mallards, mandarins, heron, cormorant – all frequent visitors. Sadly no woodpeckers, treecreepers or nuthatches which we usually see, nor kingfishers which I’ve never seen there, though Bunnyhop has. the raret thing we normally see is an egyptian goose that lives in the area. No mammals spotted either yesterday 🙁Posted 7 years ago
See! a tit, a pecker and even a nut(hatch).
Boy done good.

No beaver? 🙁Posted 7 years ago
We took some fat balls and nuts to attract the tits,which seemed to work.Posted 7 years ago
Shame that, but still a very sweet. And I’m sure you both got something out of it too.
Not in the voyeuristic way, more of a awwww!
I hope no bugger ruins my peaceful day down at the hides to tomorrow.Posted 7 years ago
Luckily they are at the arse end of nowhere.
I’ll be on the look out for raptors and waders.
And with any luck, a few short eared owls will come out to say hello.
I’ll be on the lookout for secretarybirds and shags.Posted 7 years ago
I so need to know what the outcome was.Posted 7 years ago
i laughed.Posted 7 years ago
and got asked what i was laughing at, since i’m at work (and laughing is prohibited)…
Do we know the outcome – did she say yes????
