Thanks everyone for your posts, I would have replied earlier but in my area the broadband has been down for two days seems somebody cut the cable :roll: I felt sorry for the people who work from home, any way we're back again :D

Glad you like the photos Janet, the Gold Finch are so cute we've just put a new cage out in the garden to hope fully see more birds.

Thanks Wurzel, I'll keep them coming :D I saw this Coal Tit in the garden and just has I was taking a photo of it it flew off. :D

Hi! Neil, the weather was really cold yesterday but what a contrast to today, pouring with rain at present UGH! even the Birds are hiding. :D

Thanks David, your right, I keep thinking just a few more Butterflies to enter in Favourites and then we're nearly there :lol:

Before the Internet went down I managed to see my little Coal Tit a gain a couple of days before, so I've decided to post some shots. Goldie :D

Great shots of the Coal Tit Goldie, especially the second one where you can see one of the defining features - the white stripe down the back of the black cap :D

Have a goodun

Enchanting little birds aren't they, Goldie? We all seem to have done well on the ornithological front this winter. I don't quite know why that is, because it hasn't exactly been Baltic, has it?

Thanks Wurzel, I like to photograph this little bird he's so cute and visits every day :D

Hi! David, Yes, they are great little Birds, I think we've seen more because the weather has been really cold and the ground very hard, nothing much for them to dig up. we'd Snow again this morning but when the Sun came out it quickly melted. Roll on Spring

Yesterday was a cold miserable day but at least it was fine but with an icy wind that seemed to go through to the bones UGH!

Our Daughter was visiting us from Kent and she never seemed to warm up. :D Any way we decided on the Garden Centre for a visit, I'd just put on my coat when I noticed this Lady Black Bird watching the Suet Balls hanging on the Tree, ( I was feeling sorry for her knowing Black Birds are ground feeding Birds) when she flew up to the Suet Balls wings flapping and pecked at the balls knocking bits onto the ground, then, flying down ate them up and proceeded to do this again :D
I grabbed the Camera and tried to capture some of the action in-between the Stream from the central heating system getting in the way :lol: I did manage a few shots and whilst doing this captured a shot of yet another Robin :D Goldie :D

Great set of action shots Goldie :D Your Blackbird looked pretty grey rather than the usual brown which makes it interesting as well :D

Hi! Wurzel, the Black bird is a Female ( i think ) she's really nicely marked and a regular visitor to the garden, Iv'e taken a few shots of her because she's so nicely marked, I thought at first she was a thrush because of her speckled chest but I saw the Black Bird (Male ) being bossed by her so came to the conclusion she must be one :D Goldie :D PS I've added a few shots of her.

I Know exactly what you mean Goldie, it was bl**dy cold here earlier in the week.

Funnily enough I have recently been watching Blackbirds doing a similar thing at my feeders, sometimes a group of 4 or 5 males and females taking turns to fly up and knock bits off the fat block...clever birds :D

Cheers,

Neil

She's a cracker indeed Goldie :D Finally managed to get out today no butterflies at Five Rivers so did a bit of birding and saw a pair of Bullfinches :D

Thanks for your post's Wurzel and Neil, the weather's been better these last couple of day's we've even had a couple of nice Sunsets but it's still been cold at night with frosts ; I've noticed the birds are coupling up now, today a couple of Gold Finch were together ,I'm not too sure about the Coal Tit's but two were in a tree in the back garden but certainly the Wood Pigeon's are, lots of bowing going on :lol: Spring is definitely in the air.Goldie :D
