It's been a lovely sunny day today with the temperature here reaching around 13 degrees centigrade. There have been one or two House Sparrows on the guttering with nesting material in their beaks so they must think Spring is almost here. I didn't get any photos of them but there was plenty of other activity as usual particularly at the ever popular kibbled sunflower heart feeders.
Following on from my previous post, where I mentioned that despite the fact that although the Blackbirds are well catered for elsewhere in the garden they still occasionally try to cling on to the little feeders which are aimed at the smaller birds, I managed to get a photo today which illustrates my point.
It's not often that members of the Tit family hang around long enough for me to get a photo but this handsome Great Tit obliged nicely.
I think this Goldfinch was keeping a beady eye on me!
And this Greenfinch looked at me curiously while the Great Tit had eyes only for the seed.
When my husband was walking the dog today he came across these Snowdrop beauties.
All in all it has been a very pleasant day rounded off by a birthday dinner at a local restaurant for a family member.
But this young man stayed at home!
