Who's visiting your bird feeders?

Yes, I always do it. We're away Saturday so it'll be Sunday or Monday here.

Hello Catnap   Sorry OH has been poorly - glad things are looking brighter 


Hiya SGL 


Just finished reading Jessie Burton's The Muse ... Really enjoyed it - a multi layered many textured fascinating read - a bit like a warmer more human version of Byatt's Possession.

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

Who's visiting your bird feeders?

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 ...

Still bright sunshine and hard frost here in Norfolk - we've got more birds in the garden than ever before - what's the betting they're all hiding next weekend

First bunch of daffs

Ammi majus too tall for cold frame

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