The Birds and the Vole

Not the most welcome visitor on the plot, but has to be one of the most beautiful.
especially when the sun reflects on his Spring plumage
And he's tracking down a mate, hence the interesting stance!
We're pleased to have seen more thrushes this year, eating lots of snails.
As always our little robin is also joining us.
And the magpies are watching for us to move away so that they can clear the food that we've put out for the robins!
The site is full of birds and their song but most don't pose as well as these 3 species. Oh, and there's also the occasional mammal - hello vole!
