Unexpected visitors

But luckily,  not of the outlaw variety.

I’ve been keeping an eye open for siskins in the garden. They usually only visit during times of winter hardship and I thought this everlasting frozen wasteland we are enduring just about  fitted the bill. So, I’ve been watching. We have plenty of these chaps, fighting mostly.

And I’ve seen some quite large flocks of redwings and fieldfares together, this was a passing small group. Camouflaged.

Then one of these little chaps appeared.


And he brought friends. We now have four yellowhammers that are regularly visiting, which is nice for a change. Then, this chap appeared from nowhere.

Now that is a welcome unexpected visitor!
