Second chance on Wednesday photographed the Red kite out of our spare bedroom window. Just managed to take 4 shots this time. Hopefully it will return and I can get some photos of it in flight.
Keep digging

There are hardly any birds to watch here now.   New neighbours behind my garden, have taken a chain saw to all the trees and shrubs in their garden to ground level.    Now the hundreds of sparrows have all gone.  I fill the bird bath everyday and this morning one blackbird went in for a good bath.   It made me so happy.
I have seen the buzzards wheeling overhead.  It seems as if they are on thermals as thei r wings don't move.
They must be conserving energy as well.   :D   Mrs Bouquet

Well I think we can definitely say Spring is Sprung! Any thoughts on what she is saying to us?

There are a lot of birds in the hedge, but the trouble is.... the Magpies know all about it  >:(

I know it is just nature, but I don't have to like what they do.....

Heard the cuckoo when walking the dog last night.
Also saw a single swallow earlier this week.

Well the Blue Tits are back. I peeped in the box earlier this week and counted 6 eggs. Not bothered them since. Unfortunately this current cold weather spell will undoubtedly curtail available food for the hatchlings as and when they appear. We shall see.

The attached photo was taken on the 18/05. This morning the nest is empty. I did count 6 eggs initially. So a reasonable brood bearing in mind the adverse weather conditions we have experienced. The 2022 brood fledged on the 17/05. So 4 days later this year. Blue Tits only have one brood each year. Clean out the nest box now and wait hopefully for next year??

I have a wood pigeon who is nesting about 2 metres from the house in a Robinia Tree.  I can look closely at her and say hallo, but I am worried she has been there about 3 weeks.  No signs of eggs or babies, but how is she surviving for food and drink, she never moves  ?   Mrs Bouquet
