Happy New Year

No picture today.  Just noticed that all the holly berries in the front garden have gone - the Redwings have spent the last couple of weeks feasting on the ripe ones moving on to the cotoneaster in next doors garden now there are none left.  There were some rowan berries too, but they have all gone too.  That could be the blackbirds.

The stream was really high last night and broke its bank on the far side.  A few large logs have come down and, as the sun is out, I will have to don my wellies and remove them before they dam up the flow of water and cause a bigger problem.  Poor birds must really suffer this weather.

Still lots of goldfinches feasting on the Verbena Bodnariensis seeds in the back garden.  It is such a comical sight.
