Wild weather

The recent wildly unpredictable weather may be a dampener on wildlife watching, but sometimes it can provide its own natural spectacle.  During the morning of 29 January looking across the garden the sky suddenly start to darken, but for a few minutes the sun was still shining to help create an amazing full rainbow despite the heavy rain lashing against the window.

Another interesting sighting on 21 January was a flock of birds visiting the fat balls in the garden, including seven long-tailed tits, four great tits and two coal tits, together with a single goldcrest which was more interested in investigating the nooks and crannies around the pruning wounds on an old apple tree.
