The garden may be looking a bit swampy at the moment but the birds are making up for a lack of anything else going on. Temperatures dropped so our feeder has been busier than usual. When it’s cold I tend to go to town with fatcake, meal worms and seed. Keeping the bird baths defrosted has been a challenge though; I poured warm water on them and they were frozen again within an hour.
These photos didn’t come out quite as well as I’d hoped. One of the settings on my camera was wrong so they are a bit grainy :(
This robin is one of a pair that visit together. One of them has been ripping our hanging basket apart so perhaps they are building a nest. I hope they bring their babies to our garden.
Our first Dunnock!!
Our friends bought us this feeding stand and it’s the perfect place to hide treats. In the Summer the clematis grows around it and gives them somewhere to hide.
Is it me or does this one look it’s dancing to Night Fever?
I wrote a post about helping birds in the Winter. You can find it here if you’re interested. Have the birds been eating anyone else out of house and home?
