Fields of White

Word must have got around that there was food on the bird tree, because Saturday morning there were six long-tailed tits on the feeders.  This is the first time that I have seen them in our garden.
 Such pretty little birds!

 We three went for a walk along the public footpath on the edge of the snow covered fields.

 We discovered deer
 and rabbit tracks.
 We looped around via the supermarket and library
  and with our booty made our way home through the woods,

 across fallen trees over water.
 Back home we warmed up with hot tea and cheesy crumpets, followed by Christmas cake before settling down to some family reading:- Jay's, Husband's, Mine.

I put my bird feeder out this month, and the first birds to visit (at least the first ones I saw) were the longtailed tits, although sadly my camera was no-where to hand at the time. The other day I saw a blackcap, my first ever.
Happy watching.
P.S. Any chance you could switch off the word verification, its very difficult, thanks. You can always invoke comment moderation to stop the spammers.

Hi Joy, thank you for leaving a comment. We had our first blackcap on the feeders this week too. I know that the word verification in a pain - I often get them wrong when I leave comments on blogs, but unfortunately we need them. Best wishes, Pj x
