It has been raining here today and the snow and ice has disappeared with the forecast of much of the same for the next few days. I have had a relaxing day just watching my garden as the feeders have been quite busy. I had a new garden visitor today a male Blackcap but unfortunately his stay was brief and I didn't get a picture. The Goldfinches have been back in numbers and I have also had Blue, Great and Coal Tits, Starlings and a Robin on the feeders. The Blackbirds are still devouring the apples I have been putting out while we had the snow and frost. My garden hoovers the Woodpigeons do their best to eat anything dropped and enjoyed the peanuts I gave them as a treat.
