Feeding the birds

 

With the very cold spell we are going through ,it’s been ever more important to keep the feeders topped up for the local bird population.

Not only does this give the birds a better chance of survival, it also gives me endless hours of enjoyment watching them, and trying to sketch them. There seems to be a hierarchy amongst the House Sparrows as they queue up on a twig overlooking one of the feeders.
