    Yes a brilliant Top 10 on show here and yes I get the feeling we will do more top 10s:50:
    Maybe we should do a weekly theme on top 10 birds from all corners of the globe??

    Indeed they are PorchBhoy I've been feeding a couple including their offspring for a few years now at my break times in work, they know my break times and practically hop beside me as I get the bird nuts out my pocket, :50:
