Well... I've been missing from Blogland recently and also taking very few pictures.
Two reasons - mainly I'm in the throws of moving house and getting all the essential utilities in place... nearly there on that one and next week should see me moving in! woo hoo
Secondly, because of all this activity, added to which it's been bitterly cold and some days just down right dull, I've not had much opportunity to get out either birding or otherwise, with the camera.. but I'm getting very twitchy and suffering from withdrawal symptoms; therefore I was pleased to know the cameras were still working today!
Today I took some more belongings over to the new above to get things stowed away. I'd noticed the previous day, 11 Redwings sitting in a distant tree.
Well today got even better; the redwings were still about but had now been joined by at least one fieldfare. And said fieldfare was sitting in the small tree/bush which is just the other side of my garden fence.
The light was appalling but nonetheless managed a record shot.. the first birdy picture from my new home!
And it's the tree at the far end of my garden in the middle of this picture.
In addition I've had a robin, blackbirds, blue tits, great tits, and loads of House Sparrows. Two feeders are already up and a blue tit was already tucking in to the sunflower hearts within half an hour of the feeder being there... I think I'm going to enjoy my feathered visitors.
