Magpies getting ready for nesting, small garden bird list.

It was grey, misty and wet here in Edinburgh today, I thought that will bring the birds to the garden searching for food, but I was wrong, a very slow day on the feeders however there were 2 magpies breaking twigs off the tree in the front garden and preparing for a nest, be great to know where they’re nesting!  Here’s my garden bird list for today:

  1. Blackbird x 2
  2. Chaffinch x 1 – female
  3. Coal Tit x 1
  4. Long-tailed tit x 2
  5. Magpie x 3 – 2 of them were collecting twigs for nesting
  6. Woodpigeon x 2

I received an email about a free packaging and postage voucher code for the RSPB shop when you spend over £25, more details can be found here:

RSPB free postage voucher code – not sure how long the voucher code goes for as there didn’t seem to be an expiry date.
