Hello, just wanted to let everyone know about the birds visiting my garden over the past month or so.
I have feeders with Sunflower hearts and Nijer seed in. Also scatter some on the floor for the blackbirds (which are my favourite) and sometimes put out old apples. Costs me a fortune but worth it to see all the lovely birds coming down for the food
Brambling - about 17 counted last week
Redpoll - 2
Song Thrush - not seen it for a while but there was a Thrush singing when I got home today so assuming its the same one
Blackbirds - about 15. Get a lot this time of year but will soon be back down to the odd one or two
Goldfinch - more than I can count most days but guessing about 25
Chaffinch - about 8
Greenfinch - about 3
Goldcrest - seen briefly one morning before work
Starlings - there is a group of about 50 which hang about and sometimes come into the garden if I put bread down
Then I have a few House Sparrows ,Dunnock, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Coal Tit, Robin, Wren, Also have Collared Dove & Woodpidgeon which are a bit of a nuisance scoffing all the food!
Havent seen any Siskin yet but I did have about 15 turn up about this time last year.
