Sunday safari

 The snow arrived as forecast.   Too much snow for my liking......I do not like snow :(

 Plenty of bird activity in the garden this morning.   Pied Wagtails are present all year.    They often bring their babies to feed during the summer months.
I do not know why but these little birds always make me smile :)

Happy Sunday safari.

Dear Cheryl,
Sweet, sweet birds...
I love seeing your gardens in the dawn's light.....the snow gives a beautiful light....
hope it melts soon and waters the garden.

Hi Cheryl, we have similar scenes here but at least it is a little milder... well, just a little ;-)

Lovely photos of the Pied Wagtail, they always seem such busy little birds. I do get the odd one in my garden sometimes, particularly in bad weather but like Eileen I would love to see your little ones later in the year, that must be quite a sight!

I know you really hate snow Cheryl, but after seeing the news this morning I was so looking forward to your Sunday Safari this week!
Wagtails never fail to cheer me either.
I was so pleased to see a tiny wren in the garden of the cottage today, as there seem to be so few birds in residence. It was flitting amongst the bare branches of the damson tree. I wonder what it was looking for?
Best wishes from a distinctly unsnowy and much disgruntled North Wales snow fan!

Oh my, you have more snow than we've had all winter! How strange this year is. But perhaps it will bring more birds to your feeders. I think that's why I've had so few birds this winter--they're able to forage in the fields without a snow cover.

I've only recently come across your blog. Lovely photos. I often see pied wagtails in the road but I've only once seen them in the garden. By the way, I don't like snow either.

I hope this has all melted by now Cheryl. What beautiful photos though. I love your wagtail friend. I would like to meet him sometime.

These cute, hardy, cheerful birds make me smile too.

That is a lot of snow! I hope it melts soon. What a strange winter we're all having this year.
Happy Sunday Safari

Dear Cheryl... I'm sorry it has been SO long since I last visited... it's sometimes hard juggling work and blogging and having a life outside! I do miss the contact though with fellow bloggers. Your photos are amazing by the way ... have you changed your camera or just the way you're taking them... love the blurred backgrounds to some of your shots... anyway hope you're keeping warm... take care Miranda x
