The Redwings were back last evening and I had the camera with me. Here's a pic of one eating a worm. They were bloomin' difficult to photograph, largely because Teddy, who usually takes himself off on a nice explore by himself, unaccountably decided to stick with me which of course scared off the birds. The result looked better on the computer at home but hopefully you can see the bird?

I took part in the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch over the weekend. I've done it for the last few years. We generally have the same top ten birds coming to the garden as everyone else in the southern part of the UK, but every now and then we have a more unusual visitor (last year it was a red poll and the siskins). It's always interesting to see who's got what coming where, and of course it's fantastic for tracking fluctuations in bird populations. If you haven't done it before it only takes an hour of your time and there's still time to enter your findings on line. Just click on the blue wording above to go to the site. It's a good practical way to help our feathered friends.
