garden birds and unicorns

English: Long Tailed Tit (Aegithalos caudatus)...

Result! The fussy birds of Marlborough have finally deigned to nibble the B&Q birdfood hung out with such love and hope by yours truly earlier this week. This morning, a pair of long tailed tits on the fat balls (no sniggering please! and apologies not my photo), a pair of blackbirds, and the berry scoffing redwings are still in residence.

A cold and robust walk up and over the downs in the direction of Pewsey circumnavigating Marlborough College and St Johns school, resulted in a magical moment. On common land bisected by a public footpath, under the trees in a small copse I spied a beautiful Welsh pony (well am no expert but assumed it was Welsh!)….thick shaggy winter coat and beautiful soft nose….big soulful eyes and inquisitive as to whether I had treats in my coat pocket….then I saw another, and another…and another – seven in total and each identical. I felt like I had seen a unicorn and promised to return with carrots. Nothing quite like a winter walk for putting the colour in your cheeks!
