I stayed at home today... but did venture out into the garden to top up the feeders.
I was wrapped up warm (two jackets) and when I had finished topping up I grabbed the camera and just sat quietly in the garden for a few minutes to see what turned up.
This female Blackbird was straight onto the seed.
A Dunnock was getting chased all over the place by my little Robin.
The Blackbird with what looked like a mouthful of leaves.
Fed up of playing chase with the Robin the Dunnock took his chance...he managed to get a few seeds...
...before being seen off again by the aggressive little redbreast.
A bit of colour at last... Robins defend their territories with real determination.
I have a bit of garden tidying up to do... it will have to wait until it gets a bit warmer.
I can't remember the last time I just stayed home and relaxed doing nothing other than enjoy a bit of peace and quiet... I recommend trying it.
