They do know Lisa.

There are about a dozen blackbirds out there this morning. 3 yesterday.

The moorhen is on the pond, the green woodpeckers are excavating the meadow and I fully expect the greater spotted to arrive at the fat balls any minute. All no-shows yesterday. They know.

 Thank you Fairy

RSPB site still awry, I logged in, filled in the garden details, pressed continue and was thanked for the results I hadn't entered.

No bat box Fairy , that's sad. I have lots of those. Less last year though, I think those 2 very long cold winters thinned them out.

Fairygirl, I think you're right about the great crested Verdun. I checked it in the bird book.

I'll make sure I enter it in the RSPB count

ffb we have got a little oasis here with about 10 houses, all well treed and bushed in an otherwise agricultural desert

Dunnocks don't come to my feeders or the food I put on the ground. I know they live here though. One flew into the window last year at snow time and I had to do a rescue job.

higgy, Those are the first reed buntings I've seen this year. I don't know if it's because I haven't been looking or because they've only just come, I suspect the former, too much of a coincidence if they turned up for bird count day.

I did have a LBB I didn't recognise. The most noticeable thing about was that when a big gust of wind came and all was disturbed, every other bird flew up and this one kept on eating.
