Delighted to see the Redwings were still stuffing their faces with Cotoneaster berries at Dempsey Towers quicker than I can clear a tin of Quality Street.
The birds were there when we left for the east coast on Christmas Eve and were still stripping the branches today as we tried to reinstate a bit of normality to the tinselly routine having got home yesterday. Brilliant.
I’m no gardener, but this year the maturing Cotoneaster is finally absolutely covered in berries, and while I was hoping for something in the Waxwing line, Redwings will do just fine, even if they are so wary you have to watch, snap and film ’em through the window.
The lingering Long Tailed Duck still performing very well on the small boating lake at Crosby Coastal Park today.
Happy new year all…
