    Coal for Winter, anyone?

    We have a heat exchange pump, electrics, and a wood-burning stove. Still, a wee bit of coal can warm ones heart.

    Coming back

    Early every summer the Coal Tits disappear for a few months. This was the first one to return, in the middle of August. TTTW

    The gatepost was on the left side of my car (for those that drive on the wrong side of the road, that's the passenger side LOL). So I shoved the camera into my friend's hand and got him to take the picture. By the time he'd worked out the controls he only managed this image and the next two...

    Hmmm .. that's what he thinks of being photographed

    I'd got a hanging tub of peanut butter - you'd have thought he would be a bit more appreciative, wouldn't you. Still struggling a bit with my laptop, just managing to do things between times it decides it will let me!

    Managed to catch a Coal Tit before he flew away from this shrub. Speedy wee guys, aren't they.

    The in-coming Blue Tit was actually perched on the tree behind the Coal Tit waiting a chance to get onto the coconut. Gave up, flew round the back of the the tree onto the feeder that way. Thought that was quite clever LOL

    That's better

    The same coalie as yesterday's itchy one. Seems the itch must have gone now LOL. So he does have an eye after all.
  23. Got an itch? (SF)

    Got an itch? (SF)

    You have to scratch it don't you. Why is it you go to the dentist and as soon as he starts your nose starts to itch? I think he must do it with his eyes closed, as I can find no trace of an eye there.

    Ready for the off

    .... which he did in the next frame with a right old blur of feathers! I'd managed to get back to the new feeding station on the edge of town when the ice had subsided somewhat.
