Shot of the Day
When I looked out of the back bedroom window I was greeted by the sight of the squirrel tucking into sunflower seeds under the bird feeder. It comes most days now and if undisturbed will stay for quite long periods of time.
I spent the rest of the morning busying away in the garden and I also found time to visit some of the Spring Fling events that are being held in the town this weekend. For a couple of days each year artists and craftsmen all over the region open up their studios to the public and Langholm has attracted some of the finest to set up their studios here.
In the afternoon I went for a walk on the Castleholm where there was plenty of sport action going on in the form of a cricket match and a football match, both had attracted a fair amount of spectators.
I managed to get a shot of a Nuthatch at the nest on the topside of the Castleholm
I couldn't resist taking a photo of this wild garlic
On Sunday the squirrel was there at the feeders as usual. After breakfast I did some much needed housework which has been playing on my conscience lately.
Great excitement on the Blue Tit front, five of the eggs had hatched when I switched on the camera this morning. It is going to be a busy time ahead for the parents as eight hungry mouths to feed will be quite demanding.
