It was very quiet in the garden today, I gather bad weather put the birds off again!

Today was looking pretty dire, almost nothing then Greenfinches, Blue Tit and a Magpie saved it!  I’d been outside a bit even though it’s been raining heavily and yet there were very few birds in the garden, on my final outing to check the feeders, down to just a few fat balls, coconuts and 1 seed feeder due to birds not taking a lot at present and some of the seed in the feeder started to sprout in the feeder so cut back on what I’m putting out.  The fat is still popular though!  I am hoping that it’s more the fact the birds are in nest and on eggs that they’re not out as much.  I hope to hear a dawn chorus next week if I can manage getting up into the woods in the dim light.  Seems weird thinking “if I can get into woods in dim light” I used to do half my hiking in those conditions for landscape photography!  Enough rambling onto the bird list:

  1. Blue Tit x 1
  2. Dunnock x 3
  3. Greenfinch x 2
  4. Magpie x 1
  5. Woodpigeon x 1
