I'm sorry to hear that Lavender Lady. Maybe all of your birds don't see Eye to Eye down there in Suffolk. Maybe they've all gone abroad for the sun - there's too much rain in the UK, don't ya know ! OR maybe you've given them the bird for some reason.
Actually, throughout the year there's been plenty of sparrows, magpies, pigeons and a few doves in my garden here in Yardley, Brum.. Seagulls & crows are common in the skies but never land in the garden. However, I haven't seen many blackbirds, thrushes,starlings or blue tits hereabouts.
Recently robin(s) have arrived - I think there are two. I thought that they were terratorial but maybe they're a pair. They're a real delight to watch & listen to, often landing a few feet away while I'm tickling over the soil. One was splashing about in the bird-bath today and (maybe the same one) allowed me to video it for a full three minutes while it was singing, perched on my compost container.
Enjoy your passion Lavender Lady.
