The Chaffinch is obviously one of the regular garden visitors. Note the ring, right leg. Wow the picture is nearly good enough to read the number!
My garden is absolutely crammed with Goldfinch at the moment. This bird has to be one of the most successful British birds of recent years, most of it due to its sheer adaptability and the fact that it has become a very common garden bird.
I swear the branch of the silver birch sagged when this fat young Woodpigeon landed on it. The thing isn’t long out of the nest but wasted no time in joining the others in searching out local gardens.
This Jackdaw is clearly up to some villainy, like nicking all the peanuts.
Even the young Great-spotted Woodpeckers waste no time in searching out my nuts!
Now I must get back to the chores, where did I put that paintbrush?
