  • Lovely pic of the Blackcap TJ, I haven't had one in the garden for years, maybe with the cold coming early this year I might be lucky.
    Great to see that many LTT's PB, must get out the fat balls it seems, I also get a few now and again, they are in and out in a flash though as seems the norm, lovely little birds.

  • Great start to the month Alan. Had to smash all the water in the bird dishes this morning, brrr.

  • Lovely to see the GSW enjoying his pastry Alan, they are such handsome birds.

    This morning, despite only having small courtyard area (no garden) I seem to have attracted Nuthatches to the feeders along with 2 Tree Sparrows again keeping the House Sparrows company;   Blue Tits, Great Tits, Starling occasionally, Wren, Robin, Blackbird.   In the trees on the main drive there are long tailed tits, carrion crows, jackdaws and this morning was a lovely surprise when from the window I could see 3 Fieldfare and, single Redwing with a Starling at the top of the tree !     I heard the distinctive Chakka Chakka sound which drew my attention to them with the aid of binoculars.

  • You're a veritable honey-pot of seduction to the birds Hazel :o)
  • My, you sure are getting a great number of birds in the courtyard and driveway Hazel. They must know that you have plenty of goodies for them.!

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  • Wow that is a great selection of birds Hazy,did you leave a forwarding address by any chance:-) Lovely to see the Fieldfare and Redwing too.

  • Odd one out? Twos company & three's a crowd? Whatever, we were really pleased to see this one today, it's been coming to the same place every winter since 2005 (we saw it first in 2008).
