|My little back garden where we feed the birds.|
|Blackbirds are quick to come once the food's out!|
|The Starlings aren't far behind!|
|We get quite a few!|
|A Jackdaw decided to join us today.|
Here is the list of birds I saw today:
- Dunnock - 1
- Jackdaws - 2
- Woodpigeon - 3
- Collared Dove - 2
- Blackbird - 8
- Robin - 1
- House Sparrow - 6
- Starlings - 12
- Great Tit - 1
- Blue Tit - 2
- Coal Tit - 1
|And a Goldcrest but only for seconds!|
And the favourite surprise sighting, as I haven't seen one in my garden this year was a lovely Goldcrest. Too quick for a good photo but just caught one of it on the feeder! I also saw a Heron and a couple of Herring Gulls flying over the garden too!
|And a lovely Robin!|
I did the same thing on Saturday morning and I had a Chaffinch, Long Tailed Tits and the Magpie show up. It was a bit of a disappointment that the Nuthatch that was visiting us in the Autumn didn't show up. Probably a good job the Sparrowhawk we see from time to time wasn't about this weekend!
Our garden is rural and backs onto a paddock but it is quite small with just a bit of garden on each side of our house. Even though it's small it helps a lot of birds and lots of species. If everyone in the country does this our birds will be very well looked after!
Hope you enjoyed.
