Lovely bright morning again..bitterly cold though...Maggies making hell of a racket (noise)...god its on 4.45!!!!!
So after telling them to keep the noise down (shut up am trying to sleep) and after a lovely long snooze time to get up.....oh no feathers today (thats a good thing) after me having the trail cam set up in perfect position...oh well coffee and view the trail cam anyways to find....
A visiting BADGER!!! Not seen one in the garden for many years!
And Mr Foxy giving me that look to say thanks for the chicken...I see you! I hear you!
So I thought today was just gonna be another day of watching the usual visitors...shoo away the maggies as they keep swooping down on all the birds but Ihave it down to a fine art now...as the door handle clicks down thats usual enough to send them packing.....I sat out in the garden with a coffee, camera and a blanket over me as it was baltic (freezing)...although the sun was shining there was still a cold breeze...
Lots of my usual suspects....
And bathtime for Coaltits
Look at this poor wee one
You gotta work for your dinner in my garden...tidy up that mess!
When your down in the dumps (feeling low/sad)
A wee shake of the feathers should perk you up..maybe just a little !
Feeling on top of the world
GT looking fab!
Oh an even Gully tried a bit of yoga today...
So that was a real busy day...that ended up even busier when the babies arrived(if you havent already seen them in the thread The Young of 2020) 4 Starling babies along with about 15 adults the garden was heaving (very busy)
What a wonderful day it turned out to be...and I thought it was exciting spotting the badger on the trail cam last night!
A few of my babies...
And what better way to celebrate than to have a pool party or 2..
Hope you enjoyed my day as much as I did...better go and order more food!

A brilliant collection of photos Linda, and coal tits often look bedraggled at the best of times....

lovely set Linda, those starlings are not sticking to the lockdown rules and inviting their whole family over for a pool party - I'd keep your back door closed or they may raid the fridge when you're not looking lol

Lot to learn
