In winter things can look grey and boring but if you look, there are always splashes of colour to be found in the landscape.
These photos were taken on an old industrial site near where I live.
As I was taking them, I could hear the call of a nuthatch, loud enough to make the frosted leaves tremble.
The metallic call of a great tit smashed through the freezing air, like a hammer on ice.
In contrast, the whistle of a bullfinch seemed soft and fuzzy, like the edges of these teasels.
Wrap up warm, go outside and look for treasure...
