We have been invaded! Greedy McBeaky Junior has taken shelter on the balcony, sadly he seems to have left the nest before he can fly, and for some reason his response was to hop up all our stairs and nestle up to the watering can.
The whole McBeaky clan is now camped out at various vantage points in the backyard, waiting to caw maniacally whenever we venture near the backdoor. There were some menacing swoops when I went out to leave a towel and grub too - ungrateful bunch!
Now its dark things seem to have quietened down, I'm hoping Junior makes it through the night. I'm a sucker for big blue eyes.
(Also went to see the Governor General inspect the ceremonial guard this morning, photos on flickr).
