I finally got round to putting up my new feeders a fortnight ago. After a few days of nothing much, they were found by the locals. Since then they've really taken off (so to speak) with regular visitors including finches, tits, robins and my much maligned jackdaws.
A bird in the hand may be better than one in the bush, but its those I'm helping through the winter that I'm most proud of. These are MY back garden birds.
|The most regular visitors are the neighbourhood Great Tits|
|Enjoying the nut feeder I'd put out in hope of tempting the woodpecker|
|They're frequently joined by Blue Tits|
|and flighty Chaffinches|
|As well as furtive Coal Tits|
|One out, One in. Manners are key at the Ravenscraig feeders.|
|Not so nice to wake up to; the local Jackies announce their arrival with a deafening squark!|
