unexpected visitor


I wasn't expecting to post this early today and this isn't what I had in mind but I've been off work with a heavy cold which has given me time to watch the birds around the feeders. On Thursday this little chap turned up.

He was having a good root around until the dogs next door started barking, he stopped still, didn't curl up but just didn't move till they stopped to I went and had a closer look ( through the long lens)

I assume he/she is looking for somewhere to hibernate and he/she is definitely smaller and lighter in colour than the other one that we occasionally spot wandering round.
