Off we set for another wander around. It’s still very cold at night but day time temperatures, in the sun, are almost balmy. I had a lovely surprise whilst eating breakfast, though the photograph is grim to put it mildly.
A Nuthatch, the first one I’ve ever seen. This is taken through the van window and is the best of about a dozen shots, don’t even ask what the rest were like! He inspects the feeders from about sixty feet up and refuses to come near if I open the window. It’ll no doubt be back tomorrow so I will keep trying. No sign of the deer today, that saved the bother of not getting a picture of them!
We came back through the woodland as I could hear a Woodpecker and being full of my lack of success with the Nuthatch thought a blurry image of a Woodpecker would fit the post rather aptly. Needless to say I couldn’t find it.
I never knew Monkey Puzzle trees grew to this size. I used to see them in suburban gardens. They were usually around twelve feet tall this has to be sixty feet. If I remember rightly their correct name is Chile Pine.
We never did find the deer today, nor the Buzzard we will see what tomorrow sends our way.
