Christmas in the park

What a beautiful morning!

A nearly cloudless sky allowed the low mid-winter sun to form long shadows in its golden light and there was birdsong aplenty. I left the binoculars at home but still found black-headed gulls, blackbird, blue tits, great tits, house sparrows, jays, magpies and woodpigeon.

However, the northerly breeze didn't encourage loitering and I soon returned home for Christmas dinner.

Merry Christmas.

  1. ...and a happy new year. This is a very poetic blog. I saw my first lesser spotted woodpecker on Friday lunchtime, pecking at a hawthorn at back of Cliffview.This morning there was a flurry of long tailed tits fleetingly stop in the same bushes. I've sent my December bird survey to Lara. Afraid I wasn't sure which gull it was, my excuse, they were far away.
