The fog cleared but very, very slowly!

The fog started to clear early afternoon so a walk was on the cards! What a change from the previous sunny day! However the sun did break through the mist and fog at times making for a pleasant walk and a muddy one at times!

Lovely to come across a male Stonechat! How do they not harm themselves on such sharp looking barbed wire!!!

Flocks of Yellowhammers and Chaffinch were seen in good numbers as they flew from tree to fields, repeating this process many times over.
The favoured tree for the Yellowhammers and Chaffinches!

So, a pleasant walk after all the cold morning fog!


  1. Lovely to catch up with your blog again Pam, your Yellowhammer tree looks very like ours, a similar surrounding too alongside a path in between 2 fields! I've not managed to see any yet this year, though will soon be hearing their "little bit of cheese" calls hopefully!
    No fog here today, just very cold and horribly grey!

  2. I hope you catch up with a few Yellowhammers soon Ruth! Let me know if you see them in your 'Yellowhammer' tree!

    Cold and grey here too......and a few flurries of snow!!
