Birds on a Dull Day...

Not a lot to do on days like we are having at the moment other than watch the birds, too cold outside so mainly taken through the window. Thought I would show the distance from me inside to the bottom feeders..

As you can see its a fair distance and thats why I needed my new camera, can`t be doing with changing lenses all the time so my Canon Powershot is just fine for me, don`t mind admitting I`m only a learner..

I spotted them through the window first, then spent ages waiting in the cold for them to come back so I could get a clearer shot but NO the little devils knew I was there lurking on my patio…

As you can see my bookends are still around, I think they are lazy birds, they know there`s always food around in my garden so never venture far way…

Now I know who is eating my primroses, lol…..

Hopefully when the weather is better I can get some clearer shots outside, as you can see there are a lot of visitors even on dull grey days………

Ooh, what a lovely garden Lincslass. I know what you mean, it takes a little bit of sunshine to get me out there these days!
