Photo Hunt : Theme Messy

It is messy in lots of places on the farm.

The fold yard has cattle manure and the pig stye has pig muck which I can tell you is very messy, but I thought I would spare you that sort of mess!

As I looked through my growing catalogue of photos I came across a photo of the mound of earth that was dug out of the ground where our new grain store now stands. The photo, although messy isn’t very interesting as it doesn’t even show the whole mound of earth.

So why am I showing you half a mound of messy earth?

Well look closer to discover something else lurking in the photo to surprise and delight you.

Did you see it?

  1. Definitely a bird in the shadows. Is it a robin? Great picture!

  2. I must be blind. I had to click on the photo to see the bird and when I did it was clear as day. Great shot.

  15. Great shots of the bird. Is it a bullfinch? I’ve mislaid my reading glasses, so I’m squinting desperately at my screen, LOL.

    Happy New Year – I hope 2008 is a great year for you and yours.

  19. Hi Sara, I was going to comment on this the other evening, but I was still going through a very horrible sickness bug and the thought of pig’s muck, well you can imagine! I remember the very fragrant smell of the spreader flicking up the muck right outside my bedroom window and cycling past the very deep slurry pit, always being thankful to have passed it without falling in! I wonder whether that lovely bird found anything interesting whilst it was burying its head in that muck! Louise x
