    I know I must be getting old!
    Anyway found this in the LED in the middle of the garden today unwell, just led there blinking and wriggling its tail looking half dead.
    Gave it some water from a surringe and placed it in a large plant pot hidden in the plants. Couple of hours later it flew off.
    But what is it as never seen one before.

    Yep, a GSW. Well done Martin. A proper St Francis you are.


    Bit of a girl for picking it up in a plastic bag though, I have to say...
