it is freezing cold, temperatures are below 0 in the morning and just above in the afternoon.. The blue tits and great tits love the recently imported niger seed to face the cold. I have to put up some signposts for the finches though.. the news aren't round on twitter yet.

A fine capture Annette of this plump little blue tit. We had 8 last week together with every other little bird you care to name. But yesterday and the day before not one! All we have seen are couple of blackbirds, a few pigeons and jackdaws; all the little ones have gone!!! Sad ... Carol
