Hi everyone. Haven't been on here for a week or so, busy with work, lack of photos and to be honest just needed a break. Thought my photos were going a little 'stale'. Managed a couple of hours out today and got one or two keepers including this blue tit. Best viewed large if you have time.
No improvement with my mother I'm afraid and the hospital still has the bug!

Thanks everyone, really appreciate your comments on the photo and the thoughts for my mother. She is 90 years old and suffers with dementia. She was OK until she fell before Christmas and broke her wrist. I think it really knocked her about and now this suspected perforated ulcer has made her really weak. She isn't eating or drinking and spends most of the day asleep. Just hope she can find some strength from somewhere.
