Piggyback and Blackcap

Whilst filling up at the Tower Services this morning I noticed these Starlings using a pig as a good vantage point, it's probably nice and warm on the feet too! It's little wonder we don't see many Starlings in town. The pig fields are one  of very few places with bare ground at the moment.

A female Blackcap has been visiting our garden today feeding on the apples I've put out. It's a first for the garden too!! I took a few photos of her, again taken through the double glazed back door......I'd cleaned it this time though! :-)

A Merry Christmas to all! :-) x x
