I'd heard very heavy rain during the night and awoke to it about 5.30 this morning. At about 6.30 a.m. the sun shone so I decided to do some birding.
Most of what I saw was either having (for them) a late breakfast or undertaking their morning ablutions.
Think this blue tit must be a dad by the state of his feathers.
Young Blue and Great Tits - don't think they're speaking!
The brilliance of the male Greenfinch
and a couple of Goldfinches enjoy a meal
The starling prefers peanuts whilst showing of the colours of it's feathers
and Mr. Woody dropped by - nice to see him again
A Wood Pigeon sat surveying it's world
before having a preen.
Whilst some rather soggy Parakeets spruced themselves up a bit
and the pond Lily has come into flower
And all this whilst having my first cuppa and watching the garden.
