Yesterday I spent quite a while birding from my kitchen window to see what birds turned up, and I wasn't disappointed, in total 20 species touched down either on the ground or on the feeders. The usual species turned up which now includes a GREY WAGTAIL which is turning up on most days and keeps coming back through out the day, it loves feeding on fat ball droppings as well as what ever else it can find, I am having trouble getting a picture of it through the double glazing as it seldom comes that close.
The other birds coming to feed is REED BUNTING , 2 male and 1female turned up yesterday, plus 1 male BLACKCAP and 1 female. I am hoping these birds turn up when I am doing my BIG GARDEN BIRD WATCH.
Finally I thought out some old soaked bread and I was surprised just how quick B/H/GULLS see it. They, being 4 was very unsure, they wanted drop in and take some but still circled over the garden, until one brave bird decided to go for it, and it landed and started eating,
