Redpoll – Carduelis cabaret – (on the RSPB Red List)
A lovely quiet day. Started by waking up late for me – 8.30 – in exactly the same position as I went to sleep at around 10.30 (10 hours deep sleep!). So, feeling refreshed and calm.
I cleaned out drawers in the bedroom and moved some of the furniture around (hope Hector doesn’t mind when he gets back from being away) and between making bread and soup and other chores I took a comfy seat on the settee to watch the birds in the garden. I saw redpolls there for the first time, and in the larger fruit-laden tree just over our hedge were 12 (12!) fieldfares.
A day like today is good for the soul.
