Winter Weather At Last

Finally it feels a bit more like winter. Not sure what all these flowering daffodils and primroses are going to make of it though...

I've not been out birding much at all so far this year, so yesterday it felt like a real privilege to be stood in the middle of a lovely little mixed flock of Goldfinches, Siskins and Redpolls...

A small part of the flock

Male Siskin


It was one of those occasions that watching these birds feeding, whilst stood in bright sunshine, transported me off this earth and in to a different world... 

Isn't it amazing just how powerful and almost magical the simple pastime of watching birds can be...
