A newbie
I was thrilled to see this wee guy. I've struggled to find Yellowhammers the last two years (they'd disappeared from the usual spots); though I'd heard some about a year before about 10 miles away!

But here was one in my garden during that very hard spell in February. A new Garden Tick and Year Tick too of course.

Wow, this is an unexpected sight! I associate them so much with summer, albeit that they're resident. Extraordinary, and this is a cracker of a shot Delia.
