Who's visiting your bird feeders?

We're getting more and more birds as the shrubs we've planted are growing - the birds seem to feel more secure if they've got cover nearby. 


When I was making the coffee earlier there were at least 8 goldfinches on the feeders, plus the usual bluetits gt tits, blackbirds, robins etc

Fairy, we saw a Golden Eagle on Skye - it was a glorious June day after five days of torrential wind and rain and I think he had a hungry family to feed. We also went to the Outer Hebrides and saw a corn crake - a real once in a lifetime sighting.  Unlikely to  get those on our bird table 


Great photos Johnnycanoe - good to see birds from 'over there' :-)

Safari is the Apple browser - it's part of the system.  You don't usually change browsers on Apple - even if you add another browser it will be piggybacking on Safari so I don't think it will solve the problem.

Must've been a blockage in the system ... Maybe now that Hosta has had his drains rodded through that's sorted the problem ...?

Scatter the porridge and chopped apples over the ground for blackbirds - they prefef that to visiting dishes and feeders.

We buy live mealworms online via amazon. We then keep them in bran in the salad drawer of the garage fridge. Our robins are happy to take them from our hands or our laps
