Still here

A quick update, and apology.

The weather has been amazing this week, so I’ve taken advantage of it and been out every day. That means loads of pictures to sort through, and apologies for not keeping up with all the people I follow on here. I’ve just been too knackered by the time I’ve got home.

Today a visit to my mum, and then hopefully back to normal.

One quick picture before I go.

A Yellowhammer singing in the spring sunshine. Something worth singing about.


  1. You certainly caught hinm in full voice Keith, great shot

  2. Lovely capture of the singing Yellowhammer. It has been great to have the Sun back again, cheers us all up after so many grey days.

  3. A beautiful bird Keith.
    Glad to hear you are making the most of it.

  4. Looks like Yellowhammer has puffed out his chest and struck up the national anthem.

  5. What a photo!! Now that would do anyone's heart good, it certainly has mine, don't tell anyone but it also brought a little tear to the eye :) The sheer exultation of that little bird singing its heart out is a joy to see.

    So glad you have been getting out again, I look forward to seeing some goodies soon. Hope you have a good visit with your mum. It was nice to see the other new photo as well, great to have an update :)

  6. Quality if not quantity, Keith!

  7. A joyful picture Keith .... it's a while since I've seen (or heard) a yellowhammer.

  8. Hi Keith,
    I'm happy you got some sunshine and were able to appreciate it as well as the birdlife around you... I love this picture a lot. Tells you everything about the energy in the sun that every single organism is waiting for ;-)

  9. A little bit of bread and no cheese. I love the yellowhammer.

  10. amazing photo. I feel as though I can hear his song and just look at his puffed up chest, singing his little heart out - perfectX

  11. Great that is the Yellowhammer. From 1952 I have never never seen the one, isn't that strange.

  12. Lovely Yellowhammer Keith. Good to see you are enjoying yourself.

  13. Hi Keith..good to hear you are out doing what you love and enjoy doing!! Great shotof the Yellowhammer-- with his head thrown back and singing away!!

  14. I can hear him here in Utah, USA! The picture warms me up and has put a smile on my face. How much longer until spring?

  15. he is so cute and what a great shot!! glad things are going well for you.

  16. Every picture in your blog is a nugget...
    Regards from Berlin,

    Phil, thank you. A while since I’ve been able to see some too.

    Cheers Chris. I think this little bird was really appreciating the sun on a cold morning.

    Sam and Lisa, thanks. Such a cheerful looking bird; especially when the sun catches them, and shows off their golden yellow.

    Sara, thank you. If there were awards for singing that day, he’d win it. :)
