Queensbury today, plenty sunshine, no thaw.

                      No shortage of House Sparrows in Queensbury
                         Common gull in the blue sky                  

       

                            Same young Blackbird apple picking
                                    Trees around Foxhill park.



No more snow today and a glorious afternoon with blue skies and sunshine but despite that no sign of a thaw took place.
Just got in with the dogs and its foggy with a slight thaw from the trees and rooftops but freezing as it hits the ground.
Again just the usual resident feeders  with 28 House Sparrows in the front garden along with the usual Blackbird after the apples.  Two Collared Doves are new to the area and are moving around Foxhill feeding.
Mid afternoon today the resident garage car park Wren flew inside the workshop , flew round a couple of laps and landed on the tyre machine but by the time id shot to the office for the camera it had gone.
Every winter when its bad it makes 1 visit, sometimes going up into the corners after the cobwebs.

Belting picture of the Common Gull Bri and the lovely blue background - bet you haven't seen that for some time up there! Agree, the trees looked fantastic today.

I've noticed a few pockets of House Sparrows happily chirping around the older buildings in Qby. Glad the cold ain't ruining it for everybody.
