It was a first. Very welcome.
We are blessed by a huge variety of generally standard enough birds. Did you know that birds have specific feeding times. We get invaded 3 times a day.
Blue Tits, Coal Tits, Greenfinches, Chaffinches, Robins, Wrens, Sparrows, Blackcaps, Blackbirds, Thrushes, Woid Pigeons, Magpies all arrive daily. Jays now & then. A beautiful pair of Nuthatches last year but not yet this.
We had an invasion of Redpolls for 2 montbs a couple of years ago … bullies they are and the smaller birds took to the bottom of the garden. It’s taken a while to get them back to the top end.
Talking of bullies, we get the Sparrowhawk still. Usually only spotted by seeing feathers all over the garden but viewed now & again.
We get squirrels too. Bloody nuisances they are.
Last year badgers made a mess of the lawn as they burrowed about. One went for me one night as I took something down to the compost heap.
We hear foxes most nights. Never seen one so far.
Plus late night t’twit, t’woo’s are heard … did you know that noise takes 2 birds to make ?
I like my garden.
