I spent a couple of hours in my hide in the garden yesterday, in the vain hope that something interesting would turn up on mark11 tree - but just more Robins, Blackbirds, Sparrows and Chaffinches.
I could have said sadly only just those species. But I love watching all of those birds. I love watching their interaction with other birds. I love watching their behaviours.
So it was a thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours.
I was there when the first rays of sunshine just started coming into the garden, which gave this otherwise potential drab female Blackbird a wonderful light.
In between further snow showers birds came and went, and just as I was about to pack up, a Robin popped by.
So as the headline says that will do for the next Christmas card
As a follow up, when I pulled back the curtains this morning, a female Great Spotted Woodpecker was busying hammering out the food in Mark11 tree - hey ho!! Sod's Law is alive and well in 2010
