Not bad at all

Well, it’s been a rather eventful week on the Bird front.

With the appearance of Goldfinches, a few days later we also got some Bullfinches! and today I saw a Robin.

Wheee.

So my list of birds now looks like:

Blue Tit
Coal Tit
Long Tailed Tit
Sparrow
Starling
Collared Dove
Woodpigeon
Feral pigeon
Goldfinch
Greenfinch
Bullfinch
Robin
Dunnock
Magpie
Blackbird
Crow (never seen land in the garden, but they are around)
Swift (again, never seen actually landing, but they are overhead)
Wren
Blackcap

Not bad at all, considering we’ve lived here a month and a bit.

The Blue tits have pretty much disappeared, but can be heard calling, I’m wondering whether it’s because of the number of Sparrows. Although I do have a clinger feeder for them, the sparrows don’t often use it so it generally sees very little activity… So I guess they’re busy finding live food off the rose bushes and such around. Maybe I ought to direct them to my Rhubarb, there was a great big fat caterpillar on it last week… Probably bigger than a blue tit! Lol

So my regular visitors are in order:

Sparrow
Dunnock
Goldfinch
Greenfinch
Blackbird
Bullfinch
Bluetit

  1. Thank you Tricia, I’ve never had so many species visit me before so this is like a dream :)I hope the Bullfinches become regular, I’ve not seen them for the last couple of days although I’ve also been busy around 6/8pm so not had the chance to see if they did arrive.*fingers crossed*
