Caught in the morning light!
As the song goes " It's a new day, it's a new dawn" and, yes, it's a NEW YEAR, albeit a cold one for the first couple of hours. This was the opening of 2010 at home, a frost ridden landscape bathed largely in silence. For a while the Chough on the small sign at the entrance was the only evidence of birdlife!! The assortment of passerines about locally is low, although they seem to spend an equal amount of time searching out "natural" food, despite the conditions, as opposed to relying on the feeders.
At dusk various skeins of Barnacle Geese streamed overhead , with their barking, grumbling dialogue of calls, as they made their way for another night's feeding on farm pastures to the north .
