It's been a while since I did one of these but I noticed a build up of pictures in my 'BLOGPICS' folder on the desktop that I hadn't deleted but hadn't used either. Lots of birds. Here goes, starting with the Blue Tit obviously.....
Great Spotted Woodpecker..............hungry
Great Tits................I do worry about the kind of seedy visiting traffic that phrase might attract...
Lady Blackbird, trying to look like a Thrush:
A Brambling - thanks so much to Margaret Adamson for the identification (http://birdingforpleasure.blogspot.co.uk/) - not a strange Chaffinch. I've never seen one before and am so excited to have one in the garden:
Sparrows waiting their turn for the seed feeder:
Robin takes a big mouthful and............
...........Again, thanks to Margaret who tells me this is a male feeding the female.
Meadow Pippet rising high and singing;
An incongruous pair of Mallards wandering around on the fringe of the moor close to home. Escapees from our neighbour's pond looking for a nest site perhaps. Not a great idea doing it here as two little black dogs will have their ducklings for breakfast:
Last year's Foal number 3 scratching his bum on a rock:
Wind parted hair:
Stormy skies at the corner of Fernworthy Forest:
Ponies grazing in the distance. Tornado is the second from right:
Walls into the distance:
Somebody needs a haircut:
The cards have arrived and they're fantastic. I'll try and sort them out tomorrow so I can let you see them. The printers have done a fabulous job. They actually look like ones you would buy in a shop. Better go as someone is up who shouldn't be. The lights went out at 8.00pm and I can hear footsteps............hmmmm. So until next time, here are those dogs looking upon their domain.
