Spring has well and truly sprung!

My own garden is not much to boast about, but I took the opportunity when visiting my parents to look at some of their botanical achievements:

I made several attempts to photograph the visitors to the various bird-feeders, too. These are very popular, and over the weekend I saw Bluetits, Great-tits, Goldfinches, Hedge and House Sparrows, Chaffinches and Greenfinches. There were also lots of ravens, a thrush and a Buzzard, although none of those last three were on the bird feeders.

Unfortunately, my attempts were unsucessful - the only visitor to the feeders which I did manage to capture was a one who was a little less welcome!

Perhaps my lack of success on the bird-photography front was due to my assistant?
