Just now and five minutes ago. Woodpecker above me, hundred redwings in the trees in the photo, and some unidentified finches. Might just say hello to the owl then work  


In reply to Bottom Clinger:

Long tailed tits above me. And a tree. Not any old tree. One of Wigans finest. With a misty background. 


In reply to Bottom Clinger:

One handed while riding my bike to work. 

The sunrise was nice, not the photos...


In reply to Bottom Clinger:

29 mins more daylight than the shortest day. We’re on our way!

We've had a couple of bullfinch as frequent visitors during breeding season in last few years. Yesterday I saw 4 males  together in top of our willow with the female close by. Would they be last years youngsters?

In reply to Myfyr Tomos:

Ta. Making use of my new phone (great camera on it).

In reply to Phil1919:

Good chance, but they do ‘flock up’ during winter anyway.  Love the call of a bullfinch. I usually hear them then see that white rump. 

In reply to Bottom Clinger:

That's beautiful, thanks!

PS any advice on where I should look to see a fieldfare? Lots of redwing around here (Derbyshire) but not seen fieldfare.

In reply to Vanessa Simmons:

Fieldfare: similar to redwing, hedgerows with berries in arable fields.  Check those Mistle thrushes as well. 

In reply to Bottom Clinger:

I SHOULD have left the warm embrace of the duvet succubus this morning and got after it early. Instead, I made the alternative choice of allowing myself to be seduced by the snooze button. My self loathing knows no bounds. 

I am a weak failure and my comeuppance is viewing these wonderful images. The Bullrushes are a favourite.

Bravo!

Sunset was also spectacular today. One of the best I have seen for several years.

In reply to Bottom Clinger:

This is the best time of year for sunrise

Ah, OK. Its just that I never see them around the bird feeders so don't notice them as much.
