Hello Sheila.
What a variety of birds you had yourself today everything from Pheasant's to the tiny Wren, and then you throw in a Brambling, which must be one of the last of it's sort still here.
well done.Like the photo's

thanks all.Karen and denis,great being able to get a shot of the wren,often in the garden but first time it has stayed long enough to get a half decent photo.
Ken, the pheasants come every year to nest in the overgrown patch over the fence.OH cut a hole in the fence so they can come through and feed.The brambling is such an pretty bird first time I have seen one this winter,as you say wont be here much longer~

Lovely photos Sheila and your Wren posed beautifully, well done! I can't imagine having a pheasant in the garden, that's quite something.
