Just another Sunday


Again, thick fog greeted me when I drew back the curtains.
The grass and trees were coated in thick frost.
Birds were swooping to and fro enjoying the seed and bird cake on my feeder.
My black and white Greater Spotted Woodpeckers stabbed at the peanuts.
Eight Long Tailed Tits squabbled over the sunflower seeds until suddenly the Sparrow Hawk called for a "take-away". He missed, but sat scraping frost from the branch of the tree he chose as a lookout point next door.
The fog lifted and the sun lit up the hills, tempting me out to take a few snaps of the hoar frost sparkling on the hedgerows and the soft misty fields where the sheep were grazing.
Just another Sunday!

Long-tailed tits! How lucky you are to have them come to the feeder. We see them flitting about the trees. such sweet little birds.

Lovely frosty landscape - a photographers dream.

Gorgeous photograph. it looks very like my view but I am a bit further North and a little further east into Wales.
