Happy New Year

After a period of festive inactivity I'd like to wish you a very Happy New Year. What better than to start the year with a garden sighting, this lovely looking Goldcrest, as well as being a little bird its also a little blurred, as it was taken through double glazing. As Pete kindly pointed out, the bird is ringed, but unfortunately there isn't enough detail in the pic, doh! How great it would have been to discover where it had flown in from.

Its not the only one seen in Kirkstall over the festive period, on Christmas day morning we spotted three in the conifers in front of Kirkstall Leisure Centre. A pretty good addition to our list of Kirkstall Christmas sightings. 


  1. Nice to see you posting again after the 'break' Linda. Also nice to see the photograph of the little Goldcrest which has survived the harsh weather and which appears to be ringed which could have been exciting if it could have been read successfully.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR to you too Linda.

  2. Hello Pete, well spotted. When I initially looked I thought the red speck at the base of its leg was the red of the conifer stem, so I'm glad you pointed that out. Funnily enough its the first time Ive used Picnik online photo editing software to crop and resize the pic so I'll try looking at the pic in Photoshop to see if I can get any more detail. Best wishes, Linda

  3. Good sighting so close to home

  4. What a great garden spot & Happy New Year!
