Gabor and Giszelle, that is what my lodgers are now called, are doing fine.
The change of sitting-on-eggs shift was carried out with the same ritual as yesterday. A four-inch-long stick was presented by one to the other and carefully stowed away before the one settle down for a day on the nest and the other flew off for some fun.
It is impossible for me to tell the difference between the male and female birds so I always call them Gabor and Giszelle.
Today the tail was facing the balcony door but always when I appeared a beady eye swiveled round to look at me.
I Skyped my Dad for Father’s Day and I told him all about my new lodgers. I knew he would love the story as we had been watching Spring Watch on TV together when I was home and he always has a creature waiting to show me when I return home.
