Here are some photos I took of birds and butterflies that made those walks worthwhile.
Great Spotted Woodpeckers when not at a feeder so often tend to hide behind branches and 'chip' at you! This one was kind to me for a very short space of time.
I was chuffed to see this Comma enjoying the autumn sunshine.
These Black-headed Gulls were lined up on the bridge as if to say 'whose going to be first to be skinny dipping then!'
Below is the reason for my title today. At last, I seem to be getting closer to my goal of taking a decent photograph of Winter Wren. This little guy let me get closer and closer to him, one small step at a time. At the time he was having a singing battle with a wren on the other side of the path. Made my day! (-:
