One of my better 'up in the tree' pictures. Usually they're just silhouettes!!

I'm sure this vandal has spotted something on a lower branch.

Pretty frosty this morning, but at least the sun is shining.

A great foreshortened view of a starling, Delia. Nice feather detail. I like the intense look in its eye.

Great capture Delia. Loads of these coming into the garden just now - stunning when the light catches them.

Re Reed Bunting, we had a reed bed nearby, but they built houses next to it, and cut it back, leaving only a fraction. However, across the road from me is this: https://friendsofglasgowlnrs.wordpre...ston-park-lnr/
