A nice reminder..
On the fence behind the car, so rather difficult to get at, was a sweet wee juvenile Northern Wheatear, still with a bit of a fluffy look.

I thought I'd post this as a rather nice reminder of warmer summer days, which seem to be so far behind us and such a long way off into the future! It's 10 centigrade here today with the clear blue skies.

But I've seen Waxwing!!

All reminders of summer are welcome at the moment, Delia, and this is a nice one. We did see some sun today though.
 
Handsome wheatear from your birding trip with nice details of the actual weather at your place.
Sun and temps are still here but not the right mix for me.
 
Beautiful close-up with that green background, Delia.

And I would love so much for it to be 10°C here today 😄 . Grass is always greener on the other side, right?

This week we are getting max of 40°C and minimum of 25°C here in my area. I think I'll go birding tomorrow morning but I gotta get there really soon and return around 7:30am because around 8:00 it's already 30+°C 😄. I hate this heat so much.

Had those temperatures when I was in Australia! Fortunately no humidity until I got to Perth... that became unbearable!!!

Not a bad winter day temperature wise, especially with clear skies. I hope you enjoyed this one because I know there will be more wintery days ahead. Thanks for the reminder, ours days have been similar temperature wise but gloomy, gray skies and drizzle. Yuk! TFS my friend!
