Bird watch 2018
« on: January 01, 2018, 11:18 »
The garden robin has a rival, so fisticuffs this morning.  I also filled up the fatball feeder, so sparrows and starlings are alternatively squabbling over that.

My birds are starting 2018 all guns blazing  :lol:

Went for a stroll at a local nature reserve today, a kingfisher landed on a lake side branch about 10 feet away from me,  that was an unexpected pleasure!

Today's the daily visit by the pair of doves was as usual disturbed by the crows who chase them away from the bird table, then the starlings and the noisy robin

When my wife and i were walking to the allotment we saw 2 male bullfinches and a chaffinch in the bare trees so a welcoming sight, haven't seen wild bullfinches for ages round by us which is a great shame

I spotted & heard a lovely robin perched high in the bare branches of one of the acers this morning, it was singing for all its worth & not a cat in sight 😊

I have a very cheeky Robin in my garden who follows me everywhere and if I don't give him his food quickly enough I hear all about it.  I also have feeders out so I have lots of blue tits, greytits, starlings, blackbirds etc. plus two wood pidgeons (Fred and Bertha) who visit the garden regularly.

On Monday while walking the dogs on the golf course behind my house there was a flock of Curlews sitting on one of the greens, I have only ever seen single birds around here so was really pleasantly surprised to see so many.
