Here he is on the pole of the bird feeder.
I bought one of those ultra powerful water guns and we waged war with each other. I kept it loaded on the bedroom window sill and managed to squirt him a few times but not often enough to stop the blighter.
Now the pole has white lube on it. I couldn't find the camera in time but the funniest sight of my life was watching him try and try and keep sliding down. I looked at getting a baffle but a, they are very ugly and b, very expensive for a bit of plastic. The metal ones were so ugly I wouldn't even consider one.
On the sewing front, Malcolm from Sewfine turned up yesterday morning with my other Aurora back from service and took the other away. I feel very lucky to have such wonderful service and to have two machines so I always have a back up (three if I count the 1260)
