Fabulous February

The old view of February is cruel, bleak and frozen but in these uncertain times we have been rejoicing in more sunlight than has been available for the last quarter year.

20160222-51

So as the second full moon of the year fills the sky

20160222-65

life flourishes on Primrose Bank

20160222-30
20160222-13

in spite of the visitors

20160222-26

Today’s view through the kitchen window

20160222-02

Down in the bottom field Spot keeps watch

20160223-88

is it a rugby pitch?

20160222-36

is it a giant picture frame?

20160223-90

whatever it is basic tools are slowly digging those holes

20160223-94

The birds are performing various courtship dances

20160222-59
20160223-106

or just fuelling up

Feathered things in slightly different places

Different place (1): The neighbouring field

Today the ducks decided they would leave home and head for pastures new

20160217-03-2

They did not get far

20160217-06-2
20160217-07-2

before being returned home

20160217-02-2

Different place (2): On top of the hen run

The pheasants decided to line up there

20160217-16

Different place (3): Back of a chair

Fanny is finding it hard to find impressive places to crow from

20160217-19
20160217-23

Different place (4): Today’s through the window picture

A February Day

Spot:

20160216-53

insists she needs to be eating for thirteen

20160216-48
20160216-47
20160216-52

and gives encouragement as foundations are dug for her deluxe nursery

20160216-59
20160216-54
20160216-56

The spring flowers are slightly confused as the coldest night of the year so far follows the recent mild weather

20160216-03

Floppy enjoys strutting his new pen

20160216-07

and the Visiting Hen scavenges on a dead chaffinch

20160216-40

and later visits a soft-shell egg left by a learning-to-lay duck in the hedgerow

20160216-23

Tits continue to swarm the feeders

20160216-20
20160216-32

In the surrounding fields the sheep are being brought down for their scans

20160216-46

We are wondering about a horse…. we have got this far
