Spring things

 Spotted this out the kitchen window this morning...
a bonny male blackcap that was chased off the feeders by the robin.
And of course, our resident blackbird in his funky troos

In the garden the birds are nesting already

First brood of the year on it's way. 
WHAT a clatter the adults make fighting their way in and out of the holly tree!
Here is one of their broods from last year, 15th June.

Wire knots so useful

Reef knot above in thick fencing wire to join the strands.
This one below is baffling me for the minute.

A rainy day find

Hiding from the rain, I spotted this ace Xanthoria spp. perched on a window sill.
