No news of Queenie, I think she will come back in the breeding season.
This is not far off: last year courtship started in February. building their nest in mid March,
and mated in the beginning of April.
I am preparing for 2012 and have my licence up to October 2012.
This will be the fifth brood I have photographed,and I'm still learning.
I also spoke to the land owner about removing a fallen tree to improve the background.
I spent today with Arthur, he's very well and ate 6 fish, but my pictures were similar to previous ones.
So as not to bore you I put up a picture previously taken of a Robin.

Many thanks to Pete for my first ever EC.
I have waited so long.
He has good taste because it was given 10 out of 10 By Alison Crawley recently in a camera club competition.
I will have a glow for weeks to come.
