I was wondering if I could get some help on a chiff chaff That has arrived on a tall tree in my garden.
i have moved In to the South Downs and moved here for the bird song and all the other sounds etc, however this chiff chaff sounds like a rusty bike wheel from 4am to 8pm. It’s so loud it comes though the walls and sitting in the garden it drowns out all other sounds and no other birds go near it.
Am I in for a a lifetime of a rusty bike wheel sounds or will it move on? it arrived last week June 3rd.
honestly im Not a bird hater in fact the opposite and just want some active on keeping my sanity
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
Nature is free roaming, apart from drastic changes to your immediate environment, if any species (that includes trees/plants/weeds etc) feels it is good enough to make home, then it will.
Nature has had to adapt to our way of changing the environment so it can survive, and short of removing all natural plants, trees etc, they will aim to make any suitable place home, that is the art of species survival, something we as a species have been doing for centuries, and longer.
