Little and large: a short story…

While I was out the other day I spotted these two birds sitting on street light, the chaffinch was chaffing away as they do.

The Herring gull listened for a short while and thought the chaffinch was calling the rain on and so decided to give it some, as they do, and the chaffinch took flight…

The End!

Normal service resumed

Normal service resumed

Last weekend I spent an hour looking out of the window as part of the โ€œBig Garden Bird Watchโ€ and how many birds did I see in that hour? None, zero, nada! This is rather unusual, as there are normally a fairly wide range of birds to be seen from our windows. This morning just before I sat down to breakfast, I glanced out the window and noticed that there were a few birds about. So I decided to do a quick count, over the space of five minutes I spotted: some red wings (Turdus iliacus), a pair of jackdaws (Corvus monedula), a couple of chaffinches (Fringilla coelebs), several blackbirds (Turdus merula) and some woodpigeons (Columba palumbus). By the end of breakfast I had added a few blue tits (Cyanistes caeruleus), a great tit (Parus major), a pair of crows (Corvus corone) (which I am hoping will nest again this year), and a magpie (Pica pica). This is a far more representative sample (but far from a full list) of the bird life we usually see round here, so normal service has been resumed.
