Photo of the week #26 is a Blue tit, photographed on Monday 15th and I love the way the background is so dull yet the bird pops.

So after a week of either looking after a poorly little girl (ear infection and stomach bug) or being ill myself (stomach bug) I finally managed to drop Bo at school and head out on a walk around that patch and a very successful walk it was too. I have added another new bird taking my patch total to 108 (not bad considering this is only since August).

Low Winter Sunglasses - Oakley Sunglasses review

(not sure this sells them very well!)
Most of us will break out the sunglasses at the slightest hint of sun in the summer, yet when it comes to winter sunshine often we just squint and bare it, It’s a strange relationship, that is probably damaging our eyes, but not me.

When Shade Station contacted me offering me a pair of their Oakley trek glasses I jumped at the chance, brown lenses and low winter sun make sunny winter walks so much better.

Not much in the way of writing today instead a number of photos from yesterday morning on the patch, in what can only be described as a glorious misty and frosty morning I got home from work and ran straight out with the camera, set up and got ready to catch a beautiful misty sunrise only there was a problem! My battery was flat and I'd forgotten the spare, so a quick dash back home and out again was the result. Anyway I hope you like the photos.

Top 5 Gift Ideas for a Wildlife Lover
I thought this year in the run up to Christmas (I'm sure it applies to wildlife lovers the year round if I'm honest) I’d write one of those popular list things (Yup the internet seems to love lists, no idea why) all about some wildlife related gifts, after all I know it can be tough picking items for loved ones and knowing a few things might just help a few people out (ideally I’d suggest buying local from small producers, but that doesn't really apply this list, you’ll see why as you read on). So here are my Top 5 Gift Ideas for a Wildlife Lover.
