Since our darling Boots died last year we have noticed an increase in birds visiting our garden; they are venturing closer to us than before. They didn’t know that Boots was old and mellow and for years wasn’t bothered with birds! We are still to capture though the elusive Knysna Turaco, the Burchell’s Coucal and the busy mousebirds, weavers and bulbuls.
