Well, it’s been a rather eventful week on the Bird front.
With the appearance of Goldfinches, a few days later we also got some Bullfinches! and today I saw a Robin.
So my list of birds now looks like:
Long Tailed Tit
Crow (never seen land in the garden, but they are around)
Swift (again, never seen actually landing, but they are overhead)
Not bad at all, considering we’ve lived here a month and a bit.
The Blue tits have pretty much disappeared, but can be heard calling, I’m wondering whether it’s because of the number of Sparrows. Although I do have a clinger feeder for them, the sparrows don’t often use it so it generally sees very little activity… So I guess they’re busy finding live food off the rose bushes and such around. Maybe I ought to direct them to my Rhubarb, there was a great big fat caterpillar on it last week… Probably bigger than a blue tit! Lol
So my regular visitors are in order:
