This quote from Douglas Adams' could also be applied to my garden birds. Yesterday was the first day in months that I have not had to refill the Sunflower hearts feeders during the day. In fact I haven't even had to fill them today. I suspected this day might come soon as lately I haven't had much sighting of female Siskins - usually just half a dozen males. I am assuming that there has been a sudden burst of nestlings in the area and the birds are making merry with the abundance of St Mark's flies and Mayflies etc to feed the youngsters. Hopefully in a short while I will be inundated with juveniles

We're still getting quite a few birds, particularly a pair of robins always together, visiting our feeders. But I'm expecting things to quieten down a bit as the warmer weather comes and the insects become more prolific.
