My Sunday Photo... Window Feeder

Today, I am able to show you that the new window bird feeder has been a success.

I've spent far too long waiting to try and obtain a reasonable photo of the Blue Tit and Great Tit visiting, but finally today was the day... my patience paid off.

This type of feeder is perfect if you have cats or live in an apartment block, or above ground level.
The birds will come and be perfectly safe whilst feeding.

The birds fly in so quickly and with such amazing precision they fly off again... all within the blink of an eye and a beak full of peanut!

It's also amazing to see the birds so close.
They even visit when we are standing at the kitchen sink, which is right in front of the feeder.
I had planned to post a different photo for My Sunday Photo this week, but I was so thrilled to capture this image... I had to share it.

Thanks for your visit... I'm always thrilled to have you pop in, especially if you leave a comment.
Have a great weekend

Blue Tit Watercolour

Yay, it's Friday once again. 

One more week nearer to Spring, although when I look out of the window today, I can see lot's of spring-like images out there. 

After completing a successful RSPB Garden Bird Count last weekend, I decided that I'd add another bird to my current trend of painting the visiting birds in my garden.

I decided that I'd paint one of the UK's most popular birds... 'The Blue Tit'
Here's are a few photo's of the process

We have an amazing amount of these little cute birds visiting us. 

We've also recently stuck a perspex feeder onto our kitchen window and they are now coming to take the peanuts from it. 

Oblivious to anyone standing at the kitchen sink!
Not that I want to spend much time in the kitchen sink.
I'll try and get a photo at some stage.

With thick fog outside there was nothing for it, but to enjoy finishing my painting yesterday.

Here's the top 10 results of my own personal count thanks to the RSPB's feedback.
I was pleased because I actually counted 15 different species in that one hour of the count.

Oh yes, and if you would like to see my finish painting of the Firecrest from last week... click here
Okay the sun is shining this morning, so I'm off to enjoy the outdoors. 

I'm linking up with Paint Party Friday.

Bye for now
