Yellow and red on the cards
Just a fleeting glimpse of a distant Yellow Wagtail today, after another late start because of vital football duties (watching Chelsea's multimillion men struggle to 1-1 against Bourdeaux).
One of the most colourful things about the footy was the ref's six or seven yellow cards, and one red. So here's a picture or two - from the rainy-day bin - to match the colours of the day.
What could be more fitting than a Silvereye (Zosterops lateralis). Very yellow, and with a beady eye to boot?
Or an Olive-backed Oriole (Oriolus Sagittatus)? Some yellow, and with a red eye?
Last, two Noisy Pittas (Pitta versicolor), bits of buffy-yellow, red, green and black, lighting up their arena, but out of focus and unsatisfying. Bit like today's match.
