It has been a long time since I sat and did a bit of garden birdwatching and while looking out of the kitchen window yesterday I had the pleasure of watching 2 JAY'S make their way into the small bush where the crushed peanut holder is situated and fill their crops with as many peanuts as possible. One sat on the ground and waited until the other had finished, before doing the same.
They have obviously got good memories, the last time they visited was towards the end of last winter, I think my peanut bill is about to rise, mind you they are an attractive looking bird, and having them in my garden is something special.
I have also got male and female BLACKCAP'S feeding in the garden, they mainly feed on the apples that I have put on top of a bush, both those and the Blue Tit's seem to love them. I have also been watching REDWING'S feeding on the berry bushes in the park.
The total species of bird I saw yesterday was as follows: Chaffinch - Goldfinch - Greenfinch - Robin - Dunnock - House Sparrow - Blackbird - Starling - Blue Tit - Great Tit - Blackcap - Jay - Magpie - Collared Dove - Wood Pigeon. (Flying over) C/Crow - Herring Gull - B/H/Gull.
