He should be well fed - he clears out the birdtable every day.
But I think he was puffed out because of the bitter cold this time.
Thanks for your comment.

I like the contrast against the background. Is it a crow?
They repay one in trumps by their presence when one feeds thwm.

Strewth! At first glance I thought you'd captured a cobra about to strike :screwy: . A second look and I can see it's a swan doing...I dunno what. :clapping:

One of my favourite birds to watch,etcetera as I find their antics very comical, also when seen very close up in sunlight their iridescent colours are amazing, unfortunately, we don't have them visiting the garden!
Thanks for posting :D

I recall how they were so plentiful they'd blacken the skies of the city centre when they came to roost every night. They were considered pests because of the damage their droppings did to the buildings (and a few suits). :err: Now we rarely see more than a handful of them at a time. :dcry:
What happen? ;)
