the lovely colours of magpie feathers


The most beautiful feathers of a lonely magpie that now visits the bird-table every day to our delight.
And other regular visitors to our bird-table right now are some starlings, beautifully covered in silvery speckles.  And there are the blue tits, the great tits and the coal tits in fairly good numbers.  Another observation is that most birds look quite well fed this autumn, especially the sparrows, they look almost obese.  

Dear friends and followers, I have been almost absent from my blog for over a month now, this is because, apart from travelling, I am doing two on-line courses at the moment and my energy and time to attend to my blog is just not there.  In another week or two one of my courses will be finished and I hope to be back to normal.  Meanwhile I wish you all well and I look forward to catch up with you all soon.  Kind regards, Agnes
