The recent snow has given rise to much activity around my bird feeders and occasionally one bird would keep still long enough for me to grab an image with the long lens through the window.

Here we have one of the male blackbirds - the blackbirds forget the food and keep chasing each other away for an awful lot of the time!

A fine image, Mike, he looks so good against the white of the snow. Carol
