A Feathered Egg

Goldcrest, Regulus regulus
We went to the Wetland Trust for lunch on Friday - lasagne for Himself, veggie chile for me - and saw both goldcrests and firecrests on our afternoon walk there. They are exquisite little birds, but very fidgety, they flitter and flutter non-stop, and are not easy to photograph.  But the Captain did get some lovely shots.  My favourite is the one above - egg-shaped, feathery and looking rather baleful.

Today, El Capitano is chauffeuring me to the meeting at the Kingdom Hall.  And I have a load of new butterfly paperwork to do this afternoon.
