Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

Oh no, that sparrowhawk is becoming a regular visitor in your garden Willpar :( . As awesome as they are, they are not good for garden birds. I had one hanging around my garden before but I tried and discourage it and scare it away all the time, just to sort of make it think "oh this is not a good p...

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

I think my robin found his love :love: , I saw her eating while he was on the nearby tree yesterday, and this morning, both of them eating together :D

Brilliant. Can't wait to see the pics when they move in.
Me too Kev, I'm really hoping they decide to move in and make a nest, and keep me busy filming them :yes:

Re: My new bird box

Thank you peregrine :D , I hope so too, lets see. I just have to work out what's the best software to use for capturing and possibly streaming when the time comes. At the moment I'm trying OBS Studio but its driving me mad because it keeps losing the sound and I keep fixing it. If anyone has any sug...

My new bird box

I finally decided to buy a bird box, one with the camera, and I had it put up about a month ago. I saw my little blueys looking at it but they didn't go inside, until yesterday! :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCuE8IWr9w8 It was inside the box checking it out quickly, for only about 15-20 seconds...

I see the owners, the couple, near by guarding it all the time, they are never far from it. I don't see other magpies near by, only occasional fly by. This morning when I glanced at it, I ...

Re: Rats, I've got a rat

I haven't seen my visitor since the time I posted about it last, which is a good thing. I moved everything I could, spend time around that area (just to make sure if they are there they could hear the noise and it disturbs them :shrug: ) , put some stones in places where I thought they could travel ...
