Birds and bits and pieces

The weather this week has been cold and damp. Just by chance yesterday I looked out of the window to see a visitor. I cannot say that she is frequent because last year and the year before I only saw her once. Yes the wren had returned. Sadly the camera was upstairs and of course she had flown by the time I found it. I say she it might be he and might not be the same one. had the camera been available I might have some good shots because she was pecking in the pot nearest the house.
Today the blue tits were busy feeding and this time I did have the camera

We see most blue tits on the feeders at the front of the house. Our sparrow population seems as large as ever despite the hard winter last year.

The angels are progressing

and there are now matching stars

It is five days until my blogaversary and birds are involved so next week I shall post the finished article that someone will win.

The month seems to be whizzing past. In fact the year has. This time last year my sister came to visit. So soon it will be time to put up the Christmas decorations and hope there is no disaster
just scrolled down to see.

I really do like the tree up by the first weekend in December so Tia is going to spend a long time making do with the kitchen table!

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.

Too bad your camera was not closed by when your wren visitor came. I love to see birds at our feeders.

It is always nice to see some activity in the garden during the winter months.

I love watching the birds in my garden. We have a wren that comes too. First time I've seen one this year.
