The sun shone, the sky was blue and temperature - very cold. So I was off to Wisley again.
Today, following guidance from Frank at Wisley I went over to the Fruit Fields - which bore fruit in the shape of several Redwings and Fieldfares. As Frank had predicted (thanks Frank) they were ferreting about in the leaves under the apple trees where some of the windfalls still remained. I do hope the Bergers of RHS Wisley leave them there for the hungry birds!
Had a great walk and watched the birds on the feeders again - and the list for today
Green Woodpecker (in the fruit fields)
Goldfinches (flock of about 20 over the fruit fields)
Just some of the birds seen as Wisley:
Blue Tit and Robin
Nest Box 47 was of very great interest to a Blue Tit who made two or three visits whilst I was there
I relented and changed the lens as the colour was so good in the sunlight - I'm going to have to get a second camera........... sigh!
Top of the jet from the Fountain in the water near the House
The sun was sinking so I stopped off (very briefly) in Bushey Park - just a few pics here. Then, as my hands were getting numb with the cold, I left for home.
Jackdaw - with more colour than I've seen before
Oh - what joy to be out in the fresh air and get the legs going again after unending grey skies at the weekend!!
