Salam Zahoor. Interesting story, but sounds like something from Disneyland with its anthropomorphic style where animals talk and have human feelings. This is the first time that i have read an account away from Disneyland where a bird is supposedly showing a streak of jealousy. I do not believe such an interpretation and it could well be that females of this species of bird normally do not take responsibility neither for the hatching of eggs nor for the feeding of chicks later. To make your version credible (and that would mean that birds feel anger, jealousy, revenge etc) you would need to find another nesting pair and study their behaviour. Still, I found your story interesting as it revelas more about you than the birds- mainly your love of birds and your perseverance. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Hello Abmdsudi
The "sickening grey day" you refer to is all too common in Ireland. However it's not as bad as you think! Rather it's a soft, gentle misty drizzle. The Scots, who have similar wet weather coming in off the Atlantic, only worse, refer to "dreich" (gloomy, damp weather) and "smirr" (wind-blown drizzle). But as I remember, we didn't even have that on the day I made this photograph, and I distinctly remember swimming and lying on a beach somewhere! I think it's a combination of exposure and development that has created the rather sombre atmosphere. Thanks for your kind comments.
