Winter Birds In Shropshire 

Winter Birds In Shropshire 

We’re here in Shropshire for a few days visiting family and friends. This morning brought a surprise gift to us when a flock of waxwings swooped into the garden to breakfast on crab apples and berries. What a delight! This is the first time I have ever seen a waxwing let alone photographed one. In fact it was a first for most of the household and elicited much whispered excitement and wide-eyed wonder! I was also treated to the presence of a single fieldfare that was boisterous in its defence of territory from the blackbirds. The territory in question contained the largest amount of windfall apples in the garden! Unusual to see one on its own. Although I have come away without my computer I absolutely had to get a few images onto my phone for processing. Hope you enjoy them!

Blue Monday: Watching The Birdie

Possibly the cutest Blue Tit ever? It’s certainly made it into my favourites. Even more thrilling was being able to watch this little beauty with my godchildren, Rosie and James!
