This is the last Nature Everyday post. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to find something new to post and moving in to 2021 will mean repeating 2020 subjects. I'll continue to post as and when I find something interesting.
A HAPPY NEW YEAR
The Moon, this morning
Long Tailed Tits, there were ten of these little beauties on the feeders this morning
Birds in and around the garden this morning.
A Rook, on a wire, over the yard.
It's wet and miserable today, but yesterday was sunny. We walked across to put some flowers on Mum's grave and the Hazel bushes in the Cemetery were full of Catkins.
The Holly and the Ivy
December colour in the garden
One for sorrow ..........
We've hung some festive baubles on the trees, for the birds.
A Buzzard being harassed by a Crow over the house this morning
Oak leaves in Winter sunshine
The first Song Thrush for a while was in the front Paddock this afternoon.
Not two Turtle Doves, but love definitely is in the air.
Redwings are all around the Farm at the moment. It was much too dark and wet for photos today, so here's one from the archives.
Years ago someone chucked out an Apple core in a Lay-by on Salisbury Plain. Years later this is the result. They look good but I can't tell you what they taste like.
The underside of the Hart's Tongue Fern.
It's a miserable day with no photo opportunities so here's a typical view of a Pintail at Chew Valley Lake yesterday.
A Canada Goose taking a shower at Chew Valley Lake this morning.
Wood Pigeons. In the garden. In the rain
Despite being one of our most common birds, we don't get many Chaffinches in the garden. This is a female.
We haven't seen Goldfinches in the garden for ages. Until this morning.
A Fieldfare in the trees across the road.
The clearest it's been all day
Privet leaves brightening up a dank day
Blackbirds love the fallen Apples, even in the rain.
Sunshine, something we haven't seen for a while
Great and Blue Tit searching cavities in the wall for insects.
A Starling on a pole in the Farmyard
Contrails of the Scottish flag in Wiltshire
