So frustrating isn't it Elizabeth.  One of my cousins maintained that she always had a large amount of birds in her garden round about 4 o'clock pm so perhaps I should switch my counting time to just before sundown.

Reading through all the different things we all put out for the birds which they either devour or ignore completely - perhaps they are getting a bit picky or do we overfeed them as they are getting enough food naturally?

007 - Thank you - getting the sunflower seeds tomorrow .No, I pinched my avatar off the net!  Perhaps I should search through my photos for a local picture!

Thanks Jess as well.

This is what is good about this forum - recommendations of plants for shady clay places and evergreen too.  Thanks Jess - will look out for this in the growing season.

Gorgeous Bill.  Do you have to stake them?  Or are they tied to the fence perhaps.

Never ever seen a goldfinch in our garden.  A neighbour round the corner claims she is swamped by them and suggested I got some nyger seed.  The seed has gone off and now disposed of.  I suppose they are having such a romping time at my neighbour that they don't need to come over here.  I will however get some sunflower seed hearts as previously mentioned, for one last attempt.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Archiepem -that is so beautiful and a total surprize for this time of year - was it found in a greenhouse perhaps?

Did anyone have the same as myself - before counting began the garden was busy with birds - count started and birds hid in the bushes - count finished and they all flocked back!!?

Hello  kit7 - is it possible to post your picture on this forum by using the green tree symbol on the toolbar?  I'm sure someone on here will be able to help you then.
