Visitors on a Cold Windy Day ....

The day is wet cold and windy...a blanket day!!
A day for wearing comfy old leggings and toasty slippers..
And who should pop in to my garden ....a beautiful fox, he looked at the bird table and then disappeared through the hedge...We rarely see foxes here in the Moorlands so a real treat
( Google Photo)

 Then as I was making a cup of tea in the kitchen I spotted a Heron on the barn roof at the bottom of my garden...(this time I had my camera ready..just in case Mr Fox came back)

Just sat down with my mug of tea in the sitting room ...

Looked out into the front garden and saw a Dunnock ( hedge sparrow ) on the bird table...
 Looked again and saw someone else...

 A tiny little Woodmouse...

Where is Chris Packham when you need him!


  1. Lovely to have so many little visitors and not have to get dressed up and entertain, he, he .We get a big fat pheasant in the garden first thing on a morning pinching the bird food. Hope you are well Thea, love Jill xx

  2. aahhh such a lovely, warm post. You have some lovely visitors to your garden the photo of the bird and little mouse did make me smile :-) Have a lovely day, dee x

  3. Hello Dear Thea,
    This is such a delightful post. How lucky you were to see these lovely creatures in your garden. The fox looks so beautiful in all his red glory. A very unique photo of the little fieldmouse and the sparrow, how amazing that the bird did not frighten it away or visa versa. I am off to do the same now, and have a hot cup of tea. Its 4ºc here this morning. wishing you a happy week. val xx

  4. I love seeing little critters coming to our garden. Herons are really imposing aren't they - a bit like something prehistoric! xxx

    1. Hello Lily...yes they are, they unnerve me a bit, I think its the way their legs hang while in flight
