I hope everyone has had a nice Christmas – we certainly did. We had my in-laws over to stay with us so I haven’t really had the chance to observe the garden birds as much as usual – I had an extra pair of eyes watching…….

… the shape of our German Shepherd, Kira!

We haven’t seen Kira (or the in-laws) for about 2 1/2 years so it was really nice to catch up.

Anyway, back to the garden birds……. judging by how often I’m refilling the feeders, I assume the usual suspects are still visiting!
I did see a solitary Goldfinch loitering in the background yesterday, so I’m hoping it will return soon to feed!

I’ve also spotted this little fella helping himself (or herself) to the peanuts.

I’m throwing down a few handfuls every day to deter it from climbing onto the nut feeder (hopefully!)
I’m not really a huge fan of grey squirrels but I have to admit they have got a cuteness about them! I would still prefer to see our native red squirrels though.

It makes a change to see the garden again in daylight as usually its dark when I leave for work & dark when I get home….. I can’t wait for lighter evenings to return!
