Before the snow.....................



Well it hasn't started snowing yet but it can't be far off...........................a light dusting on the hills the other morning and snow forecast for the weekend.

Lots of birds near my place this week, in Goryokaku Park there were at least half a dozen Nuthatches (a bird I don't normally see in town), Varied, Coal, Marsh and Great Tits, Great Spotted and Japanese Pygmy Woodpecker (see above), the first Wren and Dusky Thrush of the season, Pochard and Tufted Duck, Coot, Little Grebe and best of all 4 Crossbill briefly seen in the tops of the pine trees .

So here is a non tame Nuthatch.




Thanks for clicking this link.......

  2. Two lovely photos! I don't see these birds where I live, so it's nice to see them on your blog.
    Cheers.
