The demise of our native songthrush.

Posted: 26/09/2013 at 14:08

i cn honestly say that i have beenhere for 12 years and only had fieldfare once when heavy snow came.. never had red wing etc. visit

used to get finches alot but they have also declined in my garden.. lots of sparrows house, hedge and tree, loads of starlings, two robins who are here all year round. once keeps me company in the potting shed.. so cute

one pair of blackbirds that dont let much else feed on the ground when they are here.. funny to watch them get rid of others.. 2 thrushs, but no song thrush.. and some dunnocks and loads blue tits, long tail tits and wrens..

love feeding my birds they are my pets..

i have one in my garden.. i think the nemotode for slug and snail erradication hasnt helped... i throw my snails out on my path for them to eat.. rather than killing them outright.. soon get cleared up.

we hve house martins every year before they set off.. ducking and diving for bugs over the cliff edge.. and at times come right above your head... move very fast so hard to get a picture..

barking dogs

Posted: 25/09/2013 at 10:32

it would me too flirt.. our one next door used to be  out at 12 at night barking.. at the foxes they said.. well tell it to shut up i said.. and all day whenever it heard people walking along the coastal path.. not now with the sonic device.. well unless it goes into back garden.. too far away for it to work.. but doesnt bark much when round the back.. so much better.

well know i can order them but it insists i pay £4.95 postage on top as well.. so not really worth it for me.. that makes £10.55.. so something is wrong with it.. it clearly states on magazine that it is just £5.60 for them..
