As I didn't go anywhere today (apart from some great goal keeping from me this morning) I decided to sit in my garden and try and get some good photos of the birds that feed and visit my garden. I especially liked this picture I took not only because it's a cute, fluffy juvenile Greenfinch, but also that I was about half a metre away when I took it (I was trying to hand feed it)
I also got this picture of two Goldfinches which to be honest I don't think seemed to like each other.
There were quite a few tits in the garden this morning especially Blue Tits.
There were 3 or 4 Great Tits as well, however I could only manage to get this picture.
There was a Chaffinch sitting on the fence, first male I've seen in 2 days.
Finally the local farmar had hired another farmer to plant the grass seeds in the field behind my house.
Which has invited a whole new variety of birds like the Pied Wagtails.
The best thing about today was getting an all new visitor in the garden, a Nuthatch.
I think this is a male.
I love this picture because I got the Goldfinch elegantly coming into land.

So much to enjoy in the garden today.
I am really looking forward to going to Martin Mere tomorrow.
