  1. Indeed you are having a lot of sun!
    We are waiting for it here too, levels are very low now.
    I saw your blackcap in the water dish, how cute all these birds bathing!
    I use to offer them a larger pool when I was still on my property with low level water so any bird could bathe. Here is lot different, close neighbours one of which has 9 cats... :(
    So I don't feel like encouraging birds in my small garden.
    Keep well Diane, warm hugs :)

    1. We had 16mm last night which was more than welcome. N had just planted broad beans so the timing was perfect:-) We have a couple of stray cats around here, but they have been chased away so often that they are now inclined to keep their distance. The birds are very watchful it seems though anyway. Hope you ave a good week, warm hugs Diane

    1. Thanks Linda, generally that is all I have to take around here :-) The lizards though will be hibernating very soon so one off the list. Have a good week Diane

  3. Bright and beautiful. Love your birds - not a species I am likely to see. Feathered enchantment.

    1. Thanks Velva, yes you are right the air is cooler and we do not enjoy it I have to say. We are not fans of winter, but I do get better photos of the birds this time of the year as they are much braver moving in closer for food and water. Have a great week Diane

    1. Most of the flowers in the garden other than the chiosya are yellow, just matching the autumn colours! Diane
