It's hard to remember that it is less than a week since the ground was covered in snow when I put out some sliced apple for the Blackbirds.
I have only seen the Blackbird with white head feathers once so I was lucky to be able to take some video of it.
For the first time I managed to take a short piece of video of a Sparrowhawk blending in as it sat in one of next door's old apple trees. Gerry Gutteridge, who is moderator of the All Things Sparrowhawk group on Flickr, told me it was probably wiping it beak having just eaten.
Well, that's it for another year. It just remains for me to wish you all a very Happy New Year for 2011.
My thanks to all who have visited during 2010. I hope to continue to see you here and on your own blogs through the coming year.
