Be ready for the unexpected

Went down the Greenhouse today to tidy up a few Geraniums and give them a bit more compost and removed the dead leaves. The greenhouse at this time of year is crammed full of all the plants I am trying to over-winter but in all the confusion of pots and trays I came across crocus bulbs I'd bought and then forgotten about. I need a nice calm mild winters day to have a good sort out.
The trouble is I have outgrown that greenhouse!

Filled the bird feeders again but other than that not a lot else you can do in this weather.

So I thought I'd show some photos of a trip we made up to Scotland in Nov 2007 to Caerlaverock at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre. We had gone up the viewing tower when we became aware of a kestrel landing on the roof of the building adjoining it and we managed to quickly take a few photos . He stayed there a while but most of the time he was looking away from us.
The other is a nice shot of the Whooper Swans that winter there on the feeding pond and the other some deer we spotted out on the reserve. It was a great day out!
