As well as the usual Goldfinches and Chaffinches we had pair Greenfinches and what we thought was a Siskin or a Serin.
Nothing too heavy or taxing, mostly books from crime series I have been reading. Some a little more blood thirsty than others. They were all set in the weeks before Christmas.
Festive television - not a lot of interest but I did enjoy Upstart Crow, Worzel Gummidge, Peter Rabbit, The Man who invented Christmas and Uncle Vanya all wonderful in different ways. Uncle Vanya was a stunning production with a great cast including the fine actor Anna Calder-Marshall as Nana and Toby Jones as Vanya. I remember seeing Uncle Vanya at Nottingham Playhouse in 1970 when Anna Calder-Marshall played Vanya's niece Sonya. Then Vanya was played by Paul Scofield. I still have a copy of the programme in my collection.
Mostly good, home cooked food
The snow had been melting away this morning but this afternoon we had another downfall. How is the weather where you are? What have you been reading lately?
