A brand new woodie in my garden this morning :D
Apart from that, my garden is totally quiet as I had to stop all activities because I will be moving soon. I'm so sad seeing it so empty :(

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

I've just come back from my holiday in Greece, and while there, I saw large numbers of swallows everywhere. But really everywhere! It was just so amazing to see them in so many places and in such large numbers. They were the most common birds (apart from good old pigeons :D ) that I saw there :eek: :)

Re: CATS

My attitude to visiting cats is recorded elsewhere on this forum but suffice to say none are physically harmed. This evening Mrs JS alerted me to a visitor of the moggy variety crossing my back patio. I went out to give my usual greeting and frightened it to the extent that it sped across my garden...

I found a dead sparrow under the hanging feeders this evening. :( There was a small amount of blood in his neck area and a few feathers near where I found him. Current thinking is that he was the loser of a fight. :detective:
Aw no :( , that's so sad :(

Re: COLLARED DOVES

This gorgeous thing is the latest addition to my garden visitors, a juvenile Collared Dove, fledged not long ago by the looks of it :flying:
It made me laugh to see it earlier chasing off a much larger pigeon from its food spot :fence: :laugh: :love:
