Friday smile



 
Just one of my many garden visitors!
It is a Red Legged Partridge.
We have had lots of pheasants in the field but today, this little treasure flew up onto my fence and sat there for about 15 mins whilst I pegged my washing out!
 
My little bird friends always bring a smile to my face.
 
For more smiles, pop over to Annie's "A stitch in time blog" - she always has something cheery to share with us each Friday.

Don't think I've ever seen one of those Jo.....certainly not that close up! Isn't he beautiful. No wonder you are smiling.

Hi Jo, I don't think I've ever seen one of these before - red-legged grouse, yes, but not a partridge with red legs. Super photo and wasn't it nice of him to stay long enough for you to get a shot of him :) Thanks for sharing. Elizabeth xx

I'm so glad you knew that was a partridge, because I had no idea. Of course, I know it looks well fed. That's the perfect photo for a Friday smile, because your "healthy" bird sure put a smile on MY face!

I really love seeing the birds that visit your garden too! I am so ignorant when it comes to them as I never knew there were red legged ones!
