Any silver linings in this pandemic?
A family wedding likely won't be going ahead in June, which is great for me because I don't want to go.

In many ways the best years I had in Hong Kong were in the years after SARS. The SARS time itself though was a right fucking cunt. And this time is looking longer-lasting & worse.

My main worry now is my family surviving the current crisis (physically, mentally & financially; plus my daughter's schooling not being too badly fucked up - her school's been closed since mid-January)

5-6 weeks ago I was pissed off when I was informed that the wife & daughter had decided to get a fish aquarium whilst I was away. Our flat is small enough as it is (and that's before taking account of the emergency supplies that Mrs FEH has piled-up!)

They assured me the aquarium didn't cost much.

I'm actually pleased they did get the aquarium as it's helping keep me sane: laughing at the guppies that play in the streams of bubbles coming out of one of the airstones.

Mind you I got pissed off again a couple of days ago when I spotted the receipt for the shelving unit bought for the aquarium to sit on top of: it cost almost 5 times as much as the aquarium itself!

Alf, I suppose it is intrinsically more likely that chaffinches are operating mechanical crows than crows are controlling chaffinches from the inside.

Unless chaffinches are bigger on the inside than the outside.

Any more updates about those bastard, evil Chaffinches?

I have been watching my garden and not seen one but they are perhaps the masters of disguise?

Red Kites are seen throughout the year in every month in Essex. Numbers are lower in winter.

A very small number of red kites are known to have had bred in Essex as well since 2016.

Buzzards were simply unseen in the Essex countryside in my childhood in the 1970s.

By the late 80s there might be 4 or 5 sightings a year. They are now fully recolonized with a population of well over a hundred pairs. Sitings of family groups are generally common outside the M25 especially if close to an area with some woodland.

A pair of ravens bred in Suffolk for the first time in 130 years in 2018 and so more than possible that they could return as a breeding bird also. Regular sightings of a pair on the BT mast at Kelvedon Hatch.

Names like Enid, Ethel, Beryl & Doris will disappear forever.

It should be an interesting time post-virus
Lots of people will realise what they really miss and what they don’t ... and have just been doing in their lives out of habit.
Unfortunately we will also get bored of people saying they have had a revelation and have decided to give up accounting for lion taming as per the Monty Python sketch.

If they can survive til then airlines, pubs, restaurants, theatres etc will get an enormous boost.

Ski wankers are starting to get the hate that they've always deserved.

Global warming will go a notch backwards the less our capitalist bastard of a world stops doing it's thing, which thanks to this virus coming, improvements in air and water quality can already in such a short time be seen.

That is so cool. They are beautiful birds.
Never mind that they are carrion consumers mainly but they are prettier than crows.

Relatively low death rate. A cheap(ish) lesson in how to deal with worse in the future.
