here are a couple of photos from our Sunday wander. This is the 12th Century St Mary's Church - the parish church of the original Letchworth village. Letchworth Garden City - the World's First Garden City was built between the three old villages of Willian, Norton and Letchworth, we went for a walk around old Letchworth on Sunday - there's not much of it; a few old houses, the Letchworth Hall Hotel - which has some 14th Century bits if you look closely enough, the old Church and a little way along the road is the old post office.

Bird Watching and Local Wandering
A couple of weeks ago we bought this cheap little bird feeder and a great big bag of sunflower seeds. Here's one of the visitors we had at the weekend. At first it went almost a week between needing filling, but this week it was filled on Sunday and already empty yesterday, I filled it, but I've been out this morning and I see that it's already 2/3 gone!On Monday there was another new visitor but I didn't manage to get a photo - I think it was a greenfinch. Our old house was on a fairly modern housing estate and I think the only birds we had visiting the garden were blackbirds, sparrows and pigeons, plus the occasional bluetit - so we're still a bit excited when we see something new in our garden here. We got some Garden Vouchers for Christmas and we're thinking of buying a bird table with them as we're so enjoying watching our visitors.
