Bet that was noisy BB........did you do the Birdwatch over the weekend......we had hardly any birds at all!!

Yes Janey we get large flocks of chaffinches - sparrows - blackbirds - starlings then all the little odd birds in between them.

Difficult to count sometimes the lawn just black with them all.Garden has all the things they love hawthorn , elderberry loads of ivy apple trees etc insects have buddleheas , nettles and of course the pond - rather scruffy but just how they like it !

I can just imagine how noisy they must be. Like you say BB, we are all too tidy in the garden from a wildlife point of view - well, except for me and you, lol. This year, no stinging nettles will be strimmed by me, no clumps of grass growing round the base of trees will be cut either, apples will be left on the ground and the perennials will be left untouched, dying back until next Spring with all their seeds in tact and the rotting railway sleepers will be by the pond for the dragon flies!

One of three Amy - good thing is they seem to keep magpies jays and jackdaws away , I rather like them as little birds not phased by them which suggests they dont raid nests like others do.

So I hope to get these birds a better press as very different to other members of the crow family.

Oh I know farmers will say they take lambs ...really ? never seen them take a live one .

Me too think it justifies shooting them Amy - took years to convince them red kites only feed on carrion now look ..what a beautiful bird that does its bit it to tidy up !
