Bird feeders

Posted: 14/11/2013 at 08:57

The finches haven't been very active on the feeders until a couple of days ago but now they are going down the sunflower seeds at at good rate. The blackbirds are back, running around as though it's spring and having lots of baths. The woodpecker has been absent for a few months but I'm expecting him back soon. The robin keeps putting in an appearance, I think maybe more than one. A pair of wrens keep grubbing in the hedge bottom. Haven't been able to judge how many sparrows, last year we got up to 13 but then the sparrowhawk sadly reduced their numbers.

On the down side the pheasant and his 3 big footed lady friends re-visited a couple of days ago, just about jumped out of my skin when it suddenly took flight, I hadn't seen it lurking behind the flower bed. Occasionally we get ducks from the nearby ponds, I can always tell when they've been

No starlings seen on the ground for years. Did have a pair of thrushes but not seen for a few months. Always have collared Doves and fat pigeons.

It won't be long before I'm out first thing with the bucket of hot water melting the baths for them. Brrrrr...
