Look Through Any Window - The Hollies

With great determination I have managed to resist the temptation to commit the 'birds I have seen from the bedroom windows' to yet another list. While a 'hard copy' is not kept, the memory still allows the retention of most of what has been seen from these 2 vantage points which include, Yellow-browed Warbler, Mandarin, Little Grebe, Marsh Harrier and Firecrest to name but a few. During the prolonged periods of being 'rained off', I have retreated to this sanctuary armed with the trusty lap-top, and associate paraphernalia, to continue editing an endless number of photographs. Along with this boxful of goodies the camera was also to hand to record anything of interest from this view - just an exercise you understand??
The view across a couple of the many bird feeders, the lawns,
through the Wellingtonia Trees and onward to Parley Pond.
