Le corbeau ne vole que le jour
Le hibou ne vole que la nuit
Le cygne vole la nuit et le jour
(Extract from 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame' by Vicor Hugo - 1802-1885)
Welcome to my garden
First up the blooms ....
next up a few regular visitors ....
although the lesser redpoll and the brambling will be off any day now
|Blackbird guarding his nesting spot|
|Blackbirds just love fruit!|
|Lesser redpoll feeding on niger seed|
|Yes, the bullfinch is high in the pecking order||!|
|Nuthatch - a woodland bird that can walk down a tree|
|Greenfinch - male with bright plumage|
|Siskin (m) perched on a branch|
|Long-tailed tit with a tail bigger than its body|
|Brambling - only appeared in my garden this year in March|
Better late than never!
|Dunnock showing its blue-grey head and breast|
followed by a visit to the greenhouse ....
|just one olive but..... five lemons!|
and finally to see who is nesting in the orchard....
|Red-legged partridges snoozing in the sunshine|
|Wood pigeon - photo taken 12/03/17|
|'Now who's that over there?'|
|'Oh, is it Mum or maybe Dad?'|
|'Time for a top up feed!'|
|As Oliver Twist said '... I want some more'|
|'No second helpings for me!'|
Good night and sweet dreams!
