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.

Only ever seen them once. Lovely image of the Brambling but not sure that the OOF Blue Tit adds anything positive to the image.

Nicely done Annette. Do they still shoot everything that flies over there in the name of sport?

Have a safe journey, whey you finally set off.

The tits and the bolshy nuthatch think that the greaseball and the peanuts are only for them. I have seen 4-6 great tits seeing off the nuthatch!
Johanna, I promise to uplad another one to that effect later!
