Well I didn't get out with the camera today, instead had a day out with my daughter - which was really great!
It dawned bright and frosty this morning. The pond was frozen, as was the bird bath. The visiting birds were waiting expectantly to have the ice broken and water exposed so - clad in PJs and a thick fleece coat, there was I braving the cold to remove the frozen water and replenish the bird bath - the birds, duly thankful, returned for a drink as soon as I was safely back inside.
Just a few early morning visitors from today
Through the Looking Glass
(aka double-glazed window)
Blue Tit at the edge of the frozen pond
(It seems to have a rather long beak!)
and Abelia "jewels"
(And on a personal note: Mum continues to improve - which is a great relief) :D
