After strolling up to the Pond (top of my garden) I had a cuppa and a Cookie homemade of course. 

The sound of Starlings drew me up there , they way up in the tree tops. Having a good old chatter , and with the odd Blackbird flitting near by . A little wren flitting about in the undergrowth , making a high pitch tick tick. I had to keep quite still as to not frighten them off. It was a still Morning with a slight Breeze and not too chilly. 

I stood in for a few minutes just taking it all in. Then decided to pour that second  cup of tea, but as I was walking down towards the house I noticed a Woodpecker with his bright red under carriage.  Helping himself to food in the bird feeder hanging up. He was so quick and darted off as I approached. 

Enjoyed with a nice cup of Tea

That set me up for the Day , to carry on with the day ahead. Shopping , cleaning, washing and feet up to read my book. Maybe…

I think I’m a Morning person and mid afternoon , the best part of the day I’d say. 

Enjoy your day take a quiet moment to yourself …

    Oh Sheila, just my kind of morning, I felt I was there, you certainly evoked a sense of it. I love to look out of my garden watching the many birds who come to the feeders, I don’t get any woodpeckers, but the occasional Jay flies in, a few magpies , a resident nuthatch and all the usual collection, and…. just as I was getting worried about them, a couple of Chaffinches have made an appearance, I used to have so many, What a poor world we would have without birds. Lovely post hugs to all X

    I agree, nothing quite like a cup of tea. I’m impressed how you know what the birds are. I would not know a Starling if I saw one. A lovely day, this was.
