Welcome to another new follower Manicstamper (I take it you love crafting then)



Happy to say the birds are still popping by, not for long though, but we are making progress.

The pictures aren't my best but I have to snap quick before they disappear again.





My faithful little Robin who is in and out all day long now.




  These Goldfinches haven't come in our garden yet, these were right behind in a  tree in the neighbours garden. 



Can you see the little Wren


A few Pigeons stopped by,  I don't encourage them but they eat the seed which gets blown on the grass.




I have been trying for ages to picture the two Robins together, but they one usually disappears, you can just see the back of the other one.




Lovely to see some more visitors.

  2. Great photos. You are correct, they don't stay still for long, do they? I've found the hardest ones so far to be the long tail tits and the woodpeckers.

    1. sorry, hit enter to early. Meant to add that Goldfinches love Nyger seeds apparently, if you want to tempt them over the hedge.

    2. I used to have Niger in the giant feeders we had but I am not putting up those until we have lots more regular visitors as they take so much seed and I don't want to waste it, but I will get another small feeder and some Niger, I have to go out next week so will get some.

  3. We had our first long tailed tits of the winter on the feeders today, and goldfinches really do love nyger seed- you need a feeder with tiny slits. We've got a pheasant who comes to clear up under the seed feeder, he's still avoiding the shoots in the wood up the road

    1. We had long tailed tits visit the old garden once there were about 8 of them, I think they were passing through, I will get some Niger next week.

  6. i adore these pictures! my camera is too cheap and rubbish to take anything more than basic snaps lol hopefully that will change next year as i am on the lookout for a better one :)
    We have a few coal tits in our garden (or possibly great tits, i'm still working on identifying them lol) We have a bush like that hanging over our garden fence that the birds like to live in, do you know what it is? xx

    1. Hiya, the tree is a weeping cherry, in spring/summer it has a lovely blossom, coal tits are about the size of a blue tit, x

    1. I Cheryl we don't have any pets but there used to be six cats living here, perhaps that's why they have taken so long to visit.x
