I've published my pictures on facebook and my friends cannot believe that Cornwall is so amazingly beautiful. One of my friends is thinking of taking her mum on your walking holiday:-) I've recommended Walkitcornwall to her, as being based in Falmouth is definitely a better option and from personal experience, she will have a great and fun time with you.

Walking blog: The philosophy of walking

Amazing blue tit photos. A robin, a great tit and a song thrush too.

"A picture paints a thousand words" so sang David Gates as did Telly Savalas in the song "If". So here are a few action shots of our garden birds feeding on peanuts and the high rise bird canteen.

Thanks to my sister in law, Andrea for taking the photos and especially for her patience with her subjects. The song thrush is out in the open lured by our tray of peanuts. We have a blue tit that comes right to the window where the sink is as we have a fat ball attached to the outside pane of glass. The whole feeder in the harsher hours of the snow and sub zero temperatures was emptied in less than a day. We also have a family of blue tits regularly using an entrance hole in a granite wall that leads into a spacious granite one-room abode. They don't make out buildings like they used to.

Our three children 11, 9, and 6 are booked into the bird box making session at Cornwall Wildlife Trust in early February. We all can't wait. CWT arrange and run so many family events all year round in Cornwall. If you don't know how to engage with nature or want to reengage with nature in Cornwall then this is a great step forward. The Fox Club is for junior members of the clan. Check their events out here.

As for our birds the Greater Spotted Woodpecker excites us when it arrives, normally before all the other birds in the morning. Over the year at our table we have collared doves, greenfinches, long tailed tits, chaffinches, greenfinches, chiff chaffs, siskins, willow tits and others all watching for our resident sparrowhawks, magpies and jackdaws. Back to the photos.

By the way, anyone have a caption for the photo below of the blue tit open beaked saying something to the great tit??
