Cold snap snaps

I came across this wonderful piece of natural art on an old greenhouse today. The frost pattern reminded me of some fan corals.

Framed natural art

 looks even better up close

Some of the Starlings in my garden are looking their best now. One of my favourite birds.

This male Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) is a cracker.

I checked out the Black-headed Gulls on Orrell Water Park for ringed birds. There were about 100 present but only one was ringed and that was the German ringed bird that has been present since late October.

The German ringed Black-headed Gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus) is a real regular at Orrell Water Park.
I photograph it each time I see it as an easy way to check and record the ring number.
