Morning Wonky   Think I'm nearly recovered ... just took a batch of Suffolk Rusks out of the oven

Who's visiting your bird feeders?

Posted: Today at 11:19

This morning we've around two dozen black blackbirds in the back garden ... all pretending they can't see the others ... tucking into porridge oats, chopped apple and leftover macaroni cheese,  and they're queuing up to bathe at the edge of the pond where I've removed the ice. 

We've also got greenfinches, chaffinches, bluetits, great tits, a pair of robins and a group of house sparrows on the feeders, and a wren busying itself around the clematis-covered fences ... I've not seen the dunnocks out there yet this morning, but I'm pretty sure they're around somewhere ... they usually are

I wonder where they'll all go to hide next weekend when it's the Big Birdwatch ...

They should be fine - give them a bit of support so they don't get buffeted around by the winter winds.
