A Christmas Card..............

.......... for all my friends on Blogger and Facebook.   I couldn't run to a partridge in a pear tree so you'll have to make do with this pigeon in our crab apple tree instead.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Creative and Healthy New Year.   For anyone who wont be having a merry Christmas I hope that 2015 will be kinder to you.

More birds.

The wren page is finished and more or less as you last saw it.

Robin followed on quite quickly.

Great tit is waiting to be tidied up a bit and have his name added.

Likewise, House Sparrow.  I carefully arranged my collage pieces to get the best effect and took a photo so I would know where they looked best and what to attach first.   It looked much better than this - I wonder what happened!

Last year we had a squirrel in our loft, so stopped putting out peanuts for the birds in the hope of discouraging them.   We now put out porridge oats instead, and look who came for breakfast the other morning.   I don't mind really, as long as they don't come any nearer the house.
