After the storm

Last weekend a storm hit the UK which left Cafe Twitch wondering if anything would be left. But the next morning all was wonderful; calm and bright sunshine. And this brought out some coy visitors to our fare. First, some Peacock butterflies.

Now these butterflies have been somewhat reluctant to show themselves this year, so it was a great surprise to get the next sequence. They must be British butterflies; they queue so neatly.

Peacock (Nymphalis io)

Next some birds; Greenfinches and Tits.

Greenfinch (Carduelis chloris).

I love how well it camouflages into the tree trunk.

Great Tit (Parus major).

This Great Tit wasn’t nervous at all, unlike his distant cousin, who flew in and out very quickly.

Blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus).

So, there is life after the storm.
