"Oh For The Joys Of Spring"
What a laugh, when is the jet stream going to make it’s mind up and move north of the UK.
12 Noon on St Patrick’s Day I take a look out of my kitchen window, stair-rods of sleet and hail but bravely dodging the ice balls the garden birds were still feeding.
Sorry I have not been on here for a while but hopefully a return to a regularity of a weekly blog update.
Not to much on the garden front at the moment so please accept a few views from my kitchen window.
Nice to see a bit of yellow amongst the over wintering fushia
A bit of colour adds some cheer.
This Woodpigeon has a rather refined look in it’s eyes..
Just popping the wings into joint
What a cute looking Blue Tit but just been watching it chase off two larger Great tits from the feeders..
A Dunnuck searching for a few dried mealworms…
The Dunnock moves to the feeders.
I’ve put a fat feeder onto a little shrub for the smaller birds..
This male Chaffinch checking to see what the Woodpigeons have left….
I suppose the Collared Doves feed like this for protection.
Makes you wonder how they can see what’s going into an open bill.
This pigeon had been chasing another pigeon around the garden before alighting beside a pair of mating doves, perhaps looking for advice…
Very unusual for my garden but a singleLong-tailed tit arrives
The Long-tailed tit unusually arrived to feed on it’s own.. This one did not look 100% while it was feeding
Pied wagtail enjoy the sun and advantage point
Pied wagtail on next door’s screening..
This is the view from the kitchen sink to the garden. Looking a bit grim as it’s North facing but as soon as the sun high enough it soon shines over my roof top brightening the garden up. I do hope you have enjoyed my return
