We popped down to the coop on Sunday afternoon for some essentials so when Anne did the shopping I took some photos with the phone. Whilst doing this I noticed a bird I hadn't seen before feeding on seed heads by the river. On further investigation when I got home I discovered it was a Blackcap. I don't know if this is rare in these parts so if anyone can enlighten me I would be grateful.The results of the photos you can see.
I think this morning must have been the coldest yet, the temperature never dropped below minus 9 all the way to work. The journey in was quite spectacular with the build up of frost on the trees making the countryside look like a negative of a photograph and yes, I had no camera. When I left work tonight I put the phone camera to the test again, this time the Christmas lights in Carlisle city centre was the subject. The results are quite disappointing, maybe I need a bit more practice. Tomorrow I will take my main camera and see if I can get some better shots.
