With the sun deciding to stay around for the whole day you could be forgiven for thinking that spring is really on its way. There’s blossom on the trees, and this pretty male chaffinch was making the most of it this morning at Seven Sisters.
There was little else until the end of the day, when I passed back through Seven Sisters on my way home. The smaller birds were hiding in the trees, but a pair of mute swans were gliding on the still water in the end-of-day light.
Not much change in the garden. In other words, Pretty was back flying the flag for the foxes. I don’t think she scratched or picked at herself at all this evening, which is certainly a good sign that her treatment for mange is working. She certainly looks well enough as you can see in these photos.
Camera note: all bird photos taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens. The fox photos were taken with the EF 100mm f/2.8L macro IS USM lens.
