    1. The chaffinches are very cute, but as with the blackbirds, that only seem to come close enough for me to take photos in winter. Hope that all is well Linda.

  4. Hello Diane,
    What a nice surprise to discover your comment on my blog, I thought you were keeping away from blog stuff these days in England!
    Unfortunately bugs are everywhere, I got the flu and made it much worse as I stayed a long time in the cold and humidity of hides!!
    I wish you Nigel a great new year and may your wishes come about!
    Much love and warm hugs :)

    1. We are back from England thank goodness. A friend of ours who also went over suggested that England should give health warnings to visitors. Like me every time he goes there he is ill!! Hope we are all very soon feeling better!! Take care and keep warm. Hugs Diane
