Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

A couple of goldfinches visited my feeder earlier and had a nice sit down meal :clap: Yesterday, a bunch of LLTs landed on the feeder and immediately, I saw a blue tit bullying them :eek: The battle went on for a while, LTTs made bluey chase one at the time while others grabbed a seed :chuckle: But ...

Re: MICE

On my way out today, I spotted something small and brown in a small hanging feeder that tits love. As I hung it in one of the shrubs I thought its a dead leaf blown by the wind in the feeder. So I went to it to remove it, and only when I got close I saw that its a tiny mouse :eek: :mouse: eating the...

Re: TREES

Hi butterfly, looking by the trunk it is being used as a cat scratching post. And by the looks of the rest, I have doubts as to whether it would recover. Thanks Willpar, it does look sick :( . I will have to see how it goes in the spring, and might try one last attempt at saving it by moving it, bu...

Re: CATS

I found what I believe is a cat poo in my garden this morning :wife: My bird feeder is nowhere near as busy as it should be, probably because of those visits :( Don't let the cat droppings linger as other cats like to add their contribution in the same area. I usually get rid of them to a location ...

Re: TREES

I need a bit of advice if anyone can help. I have this tree in my little garden, its been there when I moved in: https://i.imgur.com/JUlUxKc.jpg As you can see, it doesn't look very healthy, as some parts near the trunk are brown and look like they are dead. Its very near the wall and its also not v...

Re: CATS

As I was walking away from my house today, I looked back and saw a neighbour's cat on the fence, clearly stalking the feeders :grumpy: :cat: . We have a problem, scary sticks are out :wife:

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

When I opened the door today, I startled one of my blackbirds who was about to have breakfast. I stopped and whistled gently and he stopped and turned around, clearly trying to decide whether I am a danger or not :unsure: . I guess by this time they (the birds) saw me quite a few times so he decided...

I lost my last visitor a few weeks ago when I think it was run over. This was a juvenile. I have set the trailcam a couple of time recently and only seen cats.
Thats so sad :(
