Me-Now-Views; Less Speak More Peek

Back to views from all the forays over the mid-winter season..
























































Who knew I'd be able to get a piccie of the stars with the Fudge?  I was after the January Moon - but managed this one as well - can you make out the constellation???

Looking out the window at father's place again.  One does that..

The well-hung cotoneaster cornubia is a winter food haven for many a bird (recall the pigeon a couple of weeks back?  here you see a blackbird at top right... but that one bottom left was of extreme interest.

It is a fieldfare, a native of Scandinavia and other wild parts. Marked as 'red' by RSPB (at high risk of disappearing from our shores), this is all the more remarkable for being spotted in a city and without several others in tow.




















































You all know what winter looks like.

How many of you have looked REAL close though???

There is colour.

There is life in waiting.

  3. You have not changed my mind about winter.
    I am impressed by the moon and the stars. I do not know your constellation as my expertise is limited to the big dipper. Please tell.

  5. While I agree winter is beautiful, I am counting the seconds until spring, or at least temperatures around -10C so we could enjoy some of it!
