Three days ago I recorded my concern about Tom, the blue tit, who had been sleeping in one of my new nest boxes for two months, but my message was "lost" as I attempted to upload it onto my blog.
I have continued to lose my ability to write to you via Type Pad. In spite of receiving I IT advice and having improvements carried out on my PC and Sony laptop, I get a paragraph ready for you and then it disappears yet again. I'm so disappointed, and now rather tired, so please accept my apologies and I will attempt to say more after I've had a few hours sleep. Suffice it to say that I am now certain that Tom is dead, but I have been very glad to have the "company" of this special little creature whilst I have been recovering after my second hip operation.
