A break in the wintry weather

Yesterday we took advantage of a break in the rainy weather to take a stroll down to our vegetable plot and see who was around.  The Red Partridge was calling and Cetti's Warbler was down by the stream making itself heard but not seen.  The Ravens and Crows were getting territorial again but the Azure-winged magpies are still flying around in flocks, as shy and as stunning as ever.
 Meanwhile back home our birdfeeder attracts the local Black Redstart couple (they nest in our back yard in an old swallow nest) a Robin, a pair of Collared Doves and a dozen or so House Sparrows...
