Lot to learn
I got so excited today I nearly dropped the camera....
as I saw something in the garden that had been absent for the past 3 years!
A male Greenfinch
And then the female pops out the tree....I used to get lots of them in the garden and missed seeing them very much!
Hope they come back soon
And to add to my excitement my song thrush had a bath!!!
Looking a wee tad angry!
And out again
Mr & Mrs C
And to finish ...2 for joy! (managed to cut out the other 10! lol)

Feels so much more satisfying when you get a bargain. Well done you and your bucket full...hope you switched arms to keep them the same length lol When I came back from my second run my next door neighbour was out and saying how well the garden was coming along before she started moaning how she wouldnt be able to sit out in her patio area in the summer because of all the bird droppings and it was because of where my feeder are in the garden! I cant help which flight path the bird chooses but I said they can easily be moved as they are all on poles...just wait until I plant the bamboo along the fence, she wont be able to see in then lol
We have a similar problem here Linda, folk seem to feel their garden is their little world and only those invited are allowed, and nature should be elsewhere, which is probably why as a nation, we're too happy pushing nature out to make money.
It shows just how distanced from nature as a species we've become.

Late up this morning...it was the squirrel eating from the window feeder that woke me. Tap tap tap against the window.
Garden was pretty quiet but colourful with my lovely new plants then I saw something on top of the fence....camera....zoom in...
Seriously....looks like my neighbour is taking action rather than just a moan!
Robin took no notice...
new assault course for the squirrel...
My anger didnt last long as I sat all the bamboo to be planted against the fence and moved my feeders a little
I think Mr BB and Mrs GSW were chatting about the changes (no a bloody gain!)
can you see me now?...nice bamboo
GT eating a piece of suet.....
Darn it I dropped it.....
Thats all for today..I dread to think what am gonna wake up and find tomorrow!
