Hi all, I’ve been busy getting ready for Australia day celebrations and I only got an hour of straight birdwatching for the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, normally I look out the window when getting lunch, breakfast etc. I hope to get a better count tomorrow for the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, today’s list wasn’t as full as my usual list of garden birds:
Blackbird x 1
Blue Tit x 1
Coal Tit x 2
Fieldfare x 1 – this one was later than the hour I did, once again my dog alerted me to the fact there was a different bird that he doesn’t recognise the call.
There were very few birds in the garden today, but it maybe due to activity as my wife was helping, okay doing most of the work due to my injuries, digging over the area that the hedge is to go into, hope to take some photos of the rest of the project, forgot today. It’s only about half done as she has to work Saturdays but it’s a start and it should be a few more days before the plants come. If you are after a good mix for a hedge the RSPB have a good page: RSPB – Homes for Wildlife – Hedge of Glory it takes you to the Ashridge Trees website for their package of a bird friendly hedge: Ashbridge Bird Friendly Hedge you can watch their video on how to plant a hedge:
