A new species for the garden today! Rain, Rain, some sun, Rain!

Finally my current profile picture matches the day with my pint of Guiness and St Patrick’s Day hat, Happy St Patrick’s day!

A new bird has shown up in the garden today, 2 siskin 1 male and 1 female, very pleased with that!  Also 4 bullfinches and the males were looking superb!  Even with the rain they shone brightly in what light there was this morning.

The DIY is almost complete, a bit late as my parents arrived today, great to see them over from Australia been about 18 months since I last saw them and 5 years since they last saw my wife.   Now onto the birds:

  1. Blackbird x 1
  2. Blue Tit x 1
  3. Bullfinch x 4, 2 x m, 2 x f
  4. Coal Tit x 1
  5. Dunnock x 3
  6. Great Tit x 1
  7. Robin x 1
  8. Siskin x 2 – 1 x m, 1 x f
  9. Woodpigeon x 1

I don’t know if this will be of interest to anyone but a user on the Australian Saver Scene has put out a challenge: (UPDATE: saverscene now CLOSED due to moving to carer in horticulture hope to have my gardening website up early 2019) there’s already a few good money saving ideas, so if you have one feel free to add it over there, I always feel money saved means more bird seed and when I can walk better more money for petrol to go birding and camera gear photographing (I’m hooked on wildlife!  But hope to be back doing landscapes soon), so try hard to do a lot of the saving ideas.
