We have had some new visitors to our garden over the last few weeks so I thought I would share them with you, they have been a source of entertainment and I never tire of watching them.
We now have a pair of Thrushes come every day
And they do like to make use of the spar facilities while they are here
Bert, (named by Bonnie, although I'm not convinced he is the original Bert,) is usually the first one to arrive in the morning, and if I haven't yet filled up the feeder he stands and stares at the kitchen window! He is quite brave and is back down most times before I've even walked away.
Although I have to say, he is like that person at a buffet who piles their plate sky high, (there is always one isn't there, lol)
I've started to put a bit of cheese out and he wants it all!
Mrs Bert has better table manners.
It looks like she's giving him that look here, lol
We had another greedy flock last week, six juvenile starlings swooped in. That bird feeder was almost half full when they arrived and they ate the lot within half an hour.
They haven't got all their plumage yet, but still so pretty, I'll forgive them their greediness because I loved watching them
I had to look this one up, its a female House Sparrow, they have a yellow beak in summer but it turns dark in Winter.
We still get loads of Tit's to the feeders everyday, especially in the morning and early afternoon, and these last few weeks there have been more Dunnocks too. I probably spend way too much time each day standing watching them through the kitchen window, but It makes me smile to watch their comings and goings so I'm not going to stop.
Marlene was the only one who said she would be interested in Lockdown by Peter May. I already have your address Marlene so will get it in the post to you by the weekend.
Two people were interested in Away With The Penguins so I used Wheel of Names.com to pick the winner and the name that came out was Jean from the blog Shrimpton and Perfect.
Jean, If you can drop me an email with your address i'll get it in the post to you.
