Bellows being used to stimulate the fire..
The kitchen garden which now seems to be 'resting'... roll on Spring :)
The water level has been lowered considerably and not many birds abouts..
And then I dropped in to Rye Meads. Saw a male pintail which was great; about six snipe and many many lapwings, teals etc.
This Kingfisher had been around for about 1/2 hour before I go into the hide. She had dived and caught a fish and repeatedly banged it against the branch. The dropped it accidentally into the water twice but, in the 2nd occasion it didn't reappear
Just a record shot!!
Lovely to have sunshine today.
and tomorrow... well we've decided where we're going so... watch this space :D
