The first day of 2019

The first day of 2019 started with rain.

The first bird of the year I heard was a European robin and the first one I saw this morning was a great tit.
Other birds on the first day of the year were Eurasian blue tit, house sparrow, Eurasian tree sparrow, dunnock, blackbird, Eurasian magpie, carrion crow and a common kestrel whizzing through our garden.

The weather cleared up during the morning, so we lit the bonfire we built yesterday. (It was too cold for us last night)

First bonfire of 2019

After 10 days of Winter, I’m already looking forward to Spring and Summer!
