On the look out
They will never spot me in here,
What's for lunch
Where did he come from
I have lost him
Not a lot down there
You don't see many like this ?
Right way up
These berries look good
A bundle of Fluff
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
In reply to Catlady:
Thank you Catlady are you in Scotland .? It sounds nice where you are, and the chance of seeing a waxwing Wow. I was talking to a guy from Leeds a couple of weeks ago and he heard of a place where a waxwing and another place of where a hoopoe had been seen, he went to both places and was lucky enough to see them both and he showed me the photos of both birds that he had photographed on his camera. I have seen twice this week a bright red breasted bird that I think is a redwing and each time as I was about to press the shutter it flew away. I hope to see it again ? I would love to get a nice photo of it. I am staying local and there are some nice local walks near me that I know are quiet with a chance of seeing something different. The long tailed tits were all in one Hawthorne tree Yesterday.
it’s a very cold day today but I might get out this afternoon. Stay safe.
Yes ILR I am in Scotland, up at the very top, in the last county of Caithness. If you have heard of John O' Groats, where folk walk, cycle, run, etc to Land's End on charity events, we live about 30 miles west. We have Dunnet Head and The Forsinard Flows 20 miles in each direction, have a Google and you will see what a beautiful place we live in. I did manage to see Waxwings once in the woodlands a mile away but none the other day, I will go again soon to see if they are around. Redwings are a lovely bird, had them once in the garden, was unsure what they were at first, very thrush like with the red breast and underwing. Good luck, hope you see them, enjoy your outdoor visits.
Edit, after reading Ann's post, re the Redwing, don't know why I said red breast, got carried away when saying red underwings, sorry.

A nice selection of photos ILR.
BTW, have you snaffled our LTT's?
If so, nice to see they've found a good home.
