Evening James "Up on the land" sounds intriguing, and if you feed the birds there then I'm sure you'll have plenty of variety too. All we seem to get around here are Magpies. A few weeks back I counted about 15 sitting on the roof of the house opposite, and they are probably our only regular visitor now.
Evening all. I feed the birds here and up at the land but totally with you on the risks of rats Mos,something omnipresent when I used to keep hens too. Mice always seem less of a problem much like squirrels,amazing what a difference a bushy tail makes!
I used to collect eggs when I was at school,so know most of the species around,but I know what you mean,other than blackbirds,sparrows,dunnocks and the odd wren/robin,that;s all I see(oh n pigeons.lol).got a 6 ft privot hedge all the way around,so hedge birds love that,tons of mice though,especially in the rockeries. once saw an owl,but it was dark,but I think it was a tawny or barn,from the park 3 roads away,there's an old beech wood in it,with old oaks all over. supermarket news.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/11337943/Morrisons-gets-festive-sales-turkey.html oh and afternoon,yeah,ive got a college about 50 houses away.lol.
Good afternoon We get the occasional bird of prey swooping through our garden, and it sits on our gate sometimes. Lovely sight. I've always been a keen birdwatcher, even as a kid I had loads of books and would "spot" as many as possible, and still love to see rarities. Our city garden gets less and less birds as the years go by, and I am reluctant to feed them as we get rats due to the amount of rubbish from all the local student houses that don't bin their detritus.
Cheers for the link there,interesting that the Chileans saw it as their victory too. The only recent activity probably spurred on by increasing my fogl and buying a few hoppers since the last time I had them was around 10p before Sealion and that Top Gear special made my blood boil frankly that we don't once and for all tell them to sod off with their illegal claims! Accepted the yanks may have helped in the background too but they hardly went out of their way as we seem to every time they launch headlong into something and we're somewhat more committed it has to be said....how I miss the days of sending a gunboat to remind these nasty foreigners who's boss of the high seas lol(or maybe I was born in the wrong century!!). Vulcans and victors eh!!! Hope the shift not too arduous.
