Some garden stuff.

As mentioned in the dualling raptors and crow blog, we had three more new birds including our first Long-tailed Tits. These birds are always a welcome sight and jointly, along with Northern Lapwing, hold the accolade of my favourite bird. There was a small family party which included this youngster.

The female Greater Spotted Woodpecker is still visiting regularly...

today he brought along with him a young bird which sat on the fence while he fed it.

A Blue Tit was doing the same on the feeders.

Other young birds in evidence included this Greenfinch.

Other regulars to be good enough to pose for photos recently are the Dunnock, Blackbird and fine pair of Goldfinches.

Dunnock, love that red eye.

Male Blackbird as beautiful as he is mellifluous.

I do love living in our little rose covered cottage.
