Yes indeed. Up before dawn today. There is a lot to do, but I’ll blog about that elsewhere.


The day hadn’t really made up its mind. I think it will be dry, but who knows when the sky looks like this?



All is as normal. Peaceful, quiet, a good start to the day.



As the sun rose, however, there was more action than I bargained for! The birds started to arrive



Apologies, some of the pictures are better than others, but I just snapped quickly so as not to miss them.



Blackbird, starlings and a jay. Not the only visitors, but the ones I caught. They are eating the berries already.



Do they know something we don’t? I’m amazed at how many berries have gone from the Rowan.



I hope there will be enough for the winter.
