I have to admit, I'd never noticed they have dark red eyes. Bit creepy, but we still love them!
Then a very noisy Wren sat on a fence post and sang at us. They have a very big voice for such a tiny bird. I love their big round tummies and the way they stick their tails up in the air.

Nanny Moth had found some Sweet Chestnuts whilst out and about. They're the chestnuts that you roast and eat at Christmas and are distantly related to the Horse Chestnut (Conkers). They're very strange looking things, as the seeds are surrounded by a spiky case, making them look a bit like a sea urchin. They're very prickly to hold and you can definitely see how the spikes would protect them from being eaten by animals.
