Coal tit cutie

This little individual is so cute – not least because it really doesn’t care for the other birds, who have no problem chasing it from its preferred food (peanuts), but also doesn’t seem to mind me hardly at all, and so whenever I come out and the other birds leave, it takes the opportunity to hang around to eat in peace, allowing me a few close-ups in the process! 🙂

Light therapy

The year has turned and the days are getting longer again. As if to emphasize this, last night provided plenty of snow and today offered sunshine from a cloudless sky, making a photo-walk in the fields an exquisitely light experience.

The bird in the treetop is a parrot crossbill – a new acquaintance for me!
