Happy New Year to you All.
Gosh what weather the world is having right now.
Here in the Highlands we have had a couple of storms that have seen us loose slates from our roof.
Fortunately we have been really lucky so far.
I honestly cant remember the last day it hasn't rained !
Snow on the mountain tops, dark mornings and dark early evenings, make for short rain filled days.
The Holly tree in the garden was abundant with berries in November but the birds have long since stripped it bare.
So a stake with some hanging brackets and bird feeders stocked up, we were amazed how quick the message got out there.
The feeding frenzy began......
It wasn't long before robins, blue tits, chaffinch's, long tailed tits, goldfinch, wrens, great tit, coaltit were feeding away.
Then lo and behold out of the corner of my eye I saw I mouse sneak out from the slate wall to gather some seeds(sadly he was too quick for the camera.)
Of course all this frenzy of small birds in the garden plays havoc with the instincts of an English pointer.
Sharing a few photo's Andy took earlier today. I wasn't quick enough with my camera.
