More snow for Queensbury



                   Apples on sticks in the garden well appreciated
                                                1st year Blackbird

                                    No Waxwings yet
                                           More snow tonight
                                    Still no gritters Dave!

Slipped up with this photo, the car on the road hit his brake and slowed right down when
he saw the flash, I was stood by a speed camera ! Oops, he,s going to be watching the post for the next 2 weeks.

A grey day below freezing with a stiff SE>4 wafting the snow about. Snowed again from mid afternoon but nothing serious, not by Queensbury standards anyway.
The numbers of passerines had moved on from around the park at midday making it a quiet lunchtime apart from the Blackbird on the apples in the front garden spending most of the day there. Hoping to tempt Waxwings but nothing as yet.

Heck - you could slow all the traffic down in Q'b'y with that camera - well as long as you dont become known as 'the flasher'!!
I will send you a photo of a gritter, if I can find one, might be tricky though!

Might try the apples too - they are on the grass (well snow) at home but they did tempt a Mistle Thrush down this afternoon and several Blackbirds.

Got the apple idea from Alistairs blog but he had Waxwings.
They never got touched on the ground, fear of cats probably but now I push them onto the Hawthorn tree and Starlings along with Blackbirds go mad on them.
Too cold in Queensbury for flashing Dave.

Did you see the young lad in Scotland holding apples in his hands and the Waxwings were landing on them and eating them!

It was on Winterwatch the other night so Brian, try standing in the middle of a field holding an apple in each hand!

Thats alright Tracy but how do you take the photo ?

Tracy C said...

Haha. You have it in front of you with a little button on a wire you can press to take the photo!

Think you,re trying to get me taken away in a straight jacket. People wonder now why I walk about looking skyward taking photos.

Haha.
