  11. Wow-- they really are pretty. The Dylan song reminds me of his rendition of Corinna Corinna on one of his earliest albums.

  13. What an amazing bird to have visit your garden, Bob, and you were there to record it with your camera! It's a sobering fact that Red-legged Partridge are only there because some barbaric people think it's fun to kill them. My breakfast was interrupted again today by the sound of gunfire - I hate it!

    With my very best wishes - - - Richard
