morning visitor


Not fearful
not fled —
just here to be fed

He doesn’t even fly away when we open the kitchen window behind him.  I’m hopeless at identifying birds, so it’s probably not a bluetit, but that’s the nearest I can find in the bird book.    Jock thinks it’s a baby because of the fluffy top, but it’s fledged, and flies and still only early April….

    I never used to be very interested in birds. They were always just something that was ‘there’, if you know what I mean. But I do grow to have more appreciation of things as I grow older, and quite happily watch our bird feeder. 🙂

    I love watching nature. This morning we had 8 baby ducklings, 3 of which got stuck under the gate to our patio.

    It’s difficult to tell from that angle!! If it’s got a black cap on, it’s a great tit otherwise I would say a blue tit. He’s obviously well fed anyway!

    He’s a Very Hungry Great Tit. He could be a young one, which would make him a bit less cautious. How lovely to be able to capture this close up.
