Monday's Magic Moment: a snack in the snow
So far I've resisted the charisma of our native birds in my photo selections, but I really like this image. It's probably the contrast between the snow and the husk of the tropical coconut that I find amusing. Here Ray Kennedy does a brilliant job of capturing this great tit looking quizzically...

Monday's magic moment: go bonkers for conkers
Looking more like an undulating landscape ready to be conquered by some adventurous explorer, I love this different take on conkers by Sue Kennedy . There are plenty of other seeds and berries for you to see in a new light on RSPB Images .
