What did you do in your garden today?

Posted: 29/05/2013 at 14:38

Thanks, I positioned everything a couple of years ago but the nestbox hasnt been used until now. And as an extra bonus a blackbird has started nesting amongst the clematis within inches of the nestbox. I didnt think they nested so close to each other!

The mealworms were only about £8 for a half kilo sack, im lucky that are located in Sheffield where I live.

Heres the view from my armchair...

Went out and bought a sack of live meal worms for the blue tits that are nesting on my patio...

 Placed in a glass dish inside a bird feeder guard to keep the larger birds off them..

 Heres a photo showing where my bird table is in relation to the nestbox (marked by the arrow top left). From my patio doors I like to sit & watch the tits feed their young...

 Within minutes the parents were feasting on the meal worms and taking them to their nest...

Thank you.

Birdy, go to photobucket website and register for a free account. You will then ned to install the photobucket app onto your iPad. You can then upload your photos from your iPad to your photobucket account wirelessly via wifi using your iPad.

Once they are on your photobucket account there is a way of copying certain information codes that you then paste on here. I do exactly this with my iPhone. There are folk that say the photobucket app doesnt work, but I can assure you it does, you just have to know what your doing. I can give you further info if/when needed.

I started re-edging my lawn. Probably one of the most impactive jobs for such little effort!
