Short and sweet

We had not been out walking since the middle of November so last week on a cold but sunny afternoon I thought Gossy Park might be sheltered and warm. Wrong -  it was freezing.
We only walked up the east side of the reserve and saw a couple of Nuthatches before we turned tail for home.

Nice start

I was surprised to hear the Waxwing trilling high up in the tree on the opposite side of the road to our front door. They were dropping down to strip the berries off a shrub growing against the wall.
