Perched on our fence, preening and fluffing of the feathers. Did you know they are adapted to hunting in confined spaces. I sometimes see her coming in for the kill, the speed and agility are quite…Continue

How many of you feed the birds on plots during the winter months? What do you offer to attract a variety of species?Continue
Oh ! good ! Glad you started this ! Can anyone tell me what this little chap is please ? He is very very tiny and in this he is sitting on a fern branch of Dicksonia tree fern . So sweet isn,t he ? Never seen one like his before : )
You have a cracking little Goldcrest on your fern. The orange crown suggests a male.
Incredible birds, in addition to a resident population hundreds fly over the North Sea to winter in the UK each year.
I would have a guess and say you have some conifers nearby?
Thankyou , and yes we do have a few conifers ..I expect there are lots of tiny birds sheltering in them this blustery evening .
Our resident birds are now starting to sing. In my west Suffolk garden I have Song Thrush, Blackbird, Collared Dove, Robin and Dunnock singing. Greenfinch are occasionally putting on a display flight.
What is happening near you?
We have a wren visiting our garden each morning and running like a mouse under our large raised pots in search of insects. Great to watch.
Busy watching 5 Brown Hares from our garden this morning. Great to see.
I heard a Chiffchaff singing from my garden this morning and at lunch time a Swallow flew over. Has winter really gone?
I have a goldcrest and an array of lovely birds that come in to my garden. I have to say the long tailed tits and the woodpecker are favourites.
The brown hares must be fascinating!
Never had Goldcrest in the garden myself, but have had Green Woodpecker. We have Great spotted close by and sometimes hear them drumming from our local churchyard.
We have Blue and Great Tits, Blackbird and House Martin nesting in our garden this year so very pleased.
