Odds & Ends

There truly is no escape from our consumer culture; if they can't get to us, they attempt to get to us through our commensals.

Yes, once again Tesco attempt to persuade us we should buy what we don't need.
We fed it to the Nu, she ate it; we won't be buying it.

It finally snowed last weekend - hooray!
You could tell it was cold out as the bird table had a constant stream of garden birds chowing down on sunflower seeds, suet and other seeds, including the delightfully cute long-tailed tits.  They are almost impossible to photograph because they move so quickly and I didn't manage it this time; but I did manage to photograph two Jays, uncommon visitors to the garden.

The most colourful of all our native Corvids.

  1. I don't think I've ever spotted a jay. 'The Living World' (BBC Radio 4 at 6.35 this morning for those who missed it) was fascinating - all about rooks.
