Watching the birds in the snow is very calming and peaceful. These videos are a tad wobbly as I was kneeling on the bed. I must do better!
And this is what happens when an hour of patiently waiting for the Robin, poised with an HD video camera, finally takes its toll and I nip off to put the kettle on.
When returning, there’s the little chap and the nearest thing is a ‘phone, which I didn’t even hold the right way up!
…and some birds in a puddle, before the snow came.
At last, Blue, Great and Coal Tits and a couple of Starlings are using the feeder which is stuck to my bedroom window.
In the garden, the Blackbirds are back, as are the Goldfinches. I now have a couple of regular Chaffinches, one with the surprisingly common Viral Papilloma on his feet.
We’ve had a little snow and watching all the gang as the flakes fall
is blooming wonderful!
I haven’t seen the Blackbirds for a few weeks and have no idea why. I haven’t seen the Goldfinches for a few days but I know September is when they move to warmer climes. I look forward to their return next year.
This is the frequent view from my kitchen door…the variety of bird varies!
…and this is the door step.
It’s difficult to film or photograph the Coal Tits but I finally managed it.
Only today have I added Birds and More, so bear with me as I fill the pages…
