The Bird Tree

Today's Sky Watch image looks up into the branches of a tree in Warrington Street, at the side of Ashton Market Ground.

The tree may not have many leaves left - I can see only around a dozen - but it more than makes up for this in birds! In fact, the tree is so popular that one bird has found itself a perch on a pole that is used for floral displays in the warmer months!

The birds are nearly all looking the same way. My guess is that they are watching the pictures on the large display screen above the entrance to the Ladysmith Centre!

Fans of Roald Dahl might wonder whether Mr Twit has passed this way recently!

The photo was taken on one of the bright but cold days that Ashton has had in between the wet and windy days.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!
