Unusual Visitors!

We feed the birds in our garden throughout the winter, and get the usual mix of Sparrows,Blackbirds,Robins,a couple of Dunnocks, and the ubiqitous Starlings along with Collard Doves.
But for the past month or so we have been getting some unusual, for us, visitors to our garden. they are Reed Buntings, a small flock of about seven, looks like 4 males and 3 females.

 I am quite pleased with these photos as they were taken with my new camera a nikon L120, which has improved my photos of my beads and I took this shot of the full moon on 7/3/2012.

And these are the latest focal beads from my kiln today.
