Common or garden birds!

As we live on the edge of the town we don’t get the more exotic birds on our feeding station, instead it is the ordinary variety consisting of sparrows, blackbirds, starlings, collared doves, jackdaws, blue tits, great tits, wrens,starlings, thrushes (mistle and song), feral pigeon and the occasional wood pigeon, and the most popular of all Robin redbreast!

I haven’t taken many photos this year of the birds and I think there are not so many about. Perhaps because of the severe winter. More to come of Jesse and Cully soon.

Yes we've noticed their decline. Everything seems to change for the worse. Poor little birds! Other species too of course.

I know....last year we had lots of wrens in our garden..even a family of 5.Think this harsh winter hit them badly...even though we tried to feed them as much as we could. None nesting here this year...sadly :o(

Well done Lyn - hope this blog was easier for you and it didnt keep you up all night !

This winter particularly tough for small birds and quite how kingfishers will have faired on frozen lakes and rivers ..certainly our starling and sparrow population seem to be thriving and birds appear to be in breeding over drive.

I spend so much time chasing off jackdaws. Sorry, but I really get cross with them although I know they are part of the community. They absolutely devastate the feeders and make a noise and a mess.
I am having some help tomorrow setting up my new laptop!! Can't wait as this old Dell PC (2004) has slowed almost to a halt. Maybe that is why my blogs take so long to put up. The family say I have too much on it Hmm!
Matthew is coming to help transfer some essential files etc.,
I do love all the photos and comments that are being shown. You are a clever lot and must have such patience!

Our resident collared doves are always chasing off the jackdaws Lyn...think this is because given half a chance they steal the eggs and young......

Glad to hear you are getting a new laptop....the best of luck with it !
