Re: SPARROWHAWK

He made a kill today. I noticed him on the ground at 1.50 pm under a pyrawotsit, his head going up and down as he ate. It was too gloomy a day to see what he had killed but he really went to town. Fetched the binocs and watched him (well, half of him anyway between the branches) for half an hour. He...

Re: SPARROWHAWK

For 3 days now a sprawk has decided around lunchtime to sit in the silver birch until I shoo him off - sorry to the purists, but I do. I'm all on the side that sprawks must eat too but not from the little mob I have patiently built up over the years, generation to generation. Aaaanyway, today it was...

Re: Your Garden Hedgehogs

Did you once say that mealworms contribute to a calcium deficiency in hedgies ?And you had substituted something else (which I forget :rolleyes:). I was a great fan of live mealies for my hedgies about 6 (?) years ago and discovered eventually that I'm allergic to them !! Mealies not hedgies. So tha...

Re: Your Garden Hedgehogs

Re: BIRD FEEDING

Hit of the season hereabouts are the suet cakes in little suet-cake-shaped cages (so you can hang them up outside a window). Cheap as chips on eBay. You might even get an excited mob of LTTs, Kev !! :nod: But I agree that feathery appetites are not so keen as in cold spells and I understand there's ...

Re: LONG TAILED TITS

Yesterday I counted 10 - I think this is accurate although it's very difficult to be certain as they simply will not keep still ! And when I looked out this morning there were already 4. The reason for this invasion is the 2 suet blocks I put out - one peanut, one insect. The LTTs simply can't get e...
