A walk towards the cycle track, heading down Crosslee road, very icy this morning . The temperature about zero centigrade. Along the cycle track towards Brookfield, the chatter of the sparrows in the hedgerows. Off the cycle track onto Sandholes road towards home. A good view point towards Glasgow and Paisley towards the East, sun just starting to break through the clouds.
The birds busy on the feeders this afternoon, braving the increasing South East wind, a good shot of a male Siskin.
Squirrels are very clever and can out wit any bit of engineering to stop them so if you can’t beat them let them feed!
The starlings are a wonderful bird, their feathers are full of colour. Some over winter here, some come in from east Europe. Any body lucky to view a “murmuration” cannot be amazed at the beauty of this spectacle
