Nice contrasting colours. A joyful picture. These little fellows seems to be flirting about everywhere.

That's a lovely picture. What more could they ask for - their own detached house, with mod. cons and a lovely garden...

I like the rustic cottage, and the bird appearing in fine fettle. It's been four or five years since Billy Biters came to my 'cottage, but a pair of greenfinches on my garden fence last mid-week, and one more on a feeder yesterday, echoed all of green, around - my leeks are now 30" tall.

Waiter! Waiter! Skims about.
Wobbling on washing lines
Raids the feeder in bandit's mask.
Cheeky little punk rocker quiff
Disappearing into the box.
Then he's out again ! like a cuckoo clock,
Into the light
To get their orders.

I love Leeks Philip - especially with chicken - well done for growing your own...

What a beautiful photo David - Spring heralding new life. The blue tit is such a sweet little bird. A bit of a fuss in our garden yesterday - a flurry of magpies - two hiding under the car - a peregrine falcon lording itt in the sky above. Every little bird seemed to be silent for a few minutes until it flew away on its hunting trip.
Thanks David - lovely, lovely photo.
