How lovely for you Milky! Did you hear their chirruping? It is such a pretty sound! We haven't seen them this year, but as they usually only arrive before extreme cold, I'm not so sad!

Such a beautiful bird! Is it a sign that extreme cold weather is about to arrive?

Milky:

I've seen you have had some really cold weather. Hopefully, it'll warm up for you!

I didn't know you lived in London. It must be so wonderful to live in a suburb of such large city. :>)

They are really special birds, lovely that they are still here, they were a few miles down the road from here in early December.
