Back to the birds

We arrived home last night and this morning had a new bird on our pond to welcome us home.

It's a northern pintail and I don't think he's been to Birdland before.

My photo isn't very clear I'm afraid as he was a long way away and I didn't want to go outside and disturb him. But you can clearly see his blue bill! What a handsome fellow.

Here are a couple of good photos so you can see what a pintail looks like:

I don't think Harold was impressed. Here were are, back after two weeks and spending our first breakfast looking through binoculars at a bird outside, instead of him! But no - we are happy to see Harold too - and he's been singing a lot since we got home.

Time for me to head off and sing now....
