Clari, I know you love your job but they need to give a girl some days off!!!
LesleyK, great chance to improve your border but only if you can still bend over! !
Overcast today and muggy, storm brewing weather
Dove, love hearing about your resident Robin, my feeders are currently feeding every neighbourhood bird although sadly no blackbirds or robins, I do have the occasional tit but mostly sparrows and starlings. Whilst pottering on the patio I filled the mealworm dish thrice and it was quickly devoured by four starlings, one of which must have a nest as he/she kept leaving with a beak stuffed with them. The mealworm I use are very much dead though and smell like chicken crisps
They tell me sparrows are in decline in some areas, well not here although sadly I found a dead chick on the stones no where near any nests, and some very eclectic nesting materials, probably raided by a magpie, we have a nearby family group and I often watch them checking out the gutter nests
