Nothing much happening with me at the mo. Haven't been able to do much walking/birding etc. for various reasons which I will not bore you with.
Now that we've some milder temperatures, the bird numbers in the garden have dropped somewhat and yesterday a Blue Tit was inspecting the nest box - not for very long and then flew away - hey ho!
This morning, in the garden observed from about 7.30 a.m. onwards (OK - I admit it - I read in bed and therefore missed dawn!!)
1 x Male Brambling (he's back!)
1 x Female Blackcap
2 x Great Tits
2 x Blue Tits
2 x Dunnocks
2 x Blackbirds
2 x Robins (must be a pair - quite happy together)
5 x Greenfinches
8 x Goldfinches (numbers down considerably)
5 x Ring-necked Parakeets
several Feral Pigeons
1 x Jay (but 3 seen chasing through the Oak Trees)
Frantic frog movement in the pond (which I think has a leak - oh joy!!)
1 x grey squirrel
1 x field mouse enjoying the sunflower hearts
and Woodpecker drumming heard again.
So all-in-all a quiet morning.
Crocuses blooming along the grass verges of the roads and my first daffodil in flower in the garden. Some sun would be nice.........
