50 plus sparrows a time visit our garden, and this year as trifid house says, we have had a family of starlings at the feeders - the first since I was a teenager (a long time!). We have wrens, robins, a pair of dunnocks, blue and great tits and the obligatory wood pigeons and ring necked doves. We occasionally have the odd flock of visiting long tailed tits too; Not to mention of course, the blackbirds! We are also priveledged to have a pair of Dunnocks who reside year on year. What we are missing however, is a thrush, which 20 years ago was a regular to the garden. Is it me, or are these much less prolific recently? Either way, a great year for birds which is encouraging - and expensive (don't mind though!) - We also fill the feeders twice daily; increasing the amount of feeders strangely doesn't help!
