The first tourists have arrived at the feeder! The locals don't really approve, but I was well pleased to see my first ever brambling. He has moved on, though.
Smile hint for Norvegian tourists the word for beechnut is faîne the tree is hêtre Smile
____________
many thanks for your friendly comments regarding the rust and your kind words. Will be off for a long trip soon ... 12 hours drive to help my mum with her grief and clearing up.Sad... but dropping in here keeps my spirits up !

That's a bird that I am not at all familiar with, Annette: very nicely plumaged and captured in fine detail.

We've had Bramblings at our feeders over the past few weeks. Aren't they such attractive little birds? I always look forward to their arrival. How nice getting the little "native" in as well! Makes a lovely image altogether. Take care. I am sure it will be a huge help to your Mum having you around.
