Have been rather lethargic of late and haven't felt like going out much, even when the sun has been shinning the wind has been cutting and I'm allergic to cold. People are whispering things like spring is round the corner, more like a long bend. one or two snow drops although very nice to see doesn't mean here is spring where are my shorts, brrrr even the thought sends shivers. So as can be seen from the pics I've been keeping myself amused watching the birds dropping into the yard, or on the bird table. Yesterday one of the Collared Doves arrived at the bird table quickly followed by its mate carrying a small twig , nudge nudge wink wink. mind you I think they could breed in a freezer. We have still been getting the following; Blue Tit, Coal Tit, Robin, Male and female Chaffinch, about half a dozen House sparrows, and one or two Starlings, and Blackbird, maybe not too bad for the centre of Penrith. And a mention of the Westies for a change , Misty became one year old in January, and Kyfer will be four in May. The two pics of them are the before and after shots, as last Thursday they went for a hair cut , so they look a pit poncey at the moment. Well more snow forecast over the next few days , but hopefully Friday will be fine as Mrs W has got the day off and we can get out and do some real birding, finger crossed.
