One tree is very special to everyone around. It's a Council tree, but overhangs our back garden, so that we get a lovely view of the birds that come and go, and of the birds that stay to have little ones.

I determined that I'd use no pictures but those of birds actually in that tree; never mind if there were better pictures of a magpie on the grass at the front, or of a dove on the garden path. It wasn't always easy!
