Talking about flashes of white, same happened to me this morning. Was down near the garden centre, not been there in a while. Anyways the flashes of white turned out to be bullfinches.

Not in the least disappointing. Never see them in my neck of the woods :(

It was a sparrow with a piece of bread in its beak :( :rolleyes:.

Never mind Placi :weep: It is always the "could have beens" that give you a little excitement. :nod:

Of the two experiences I'd prefer the bullfinches. The fact that the plural was used fills me with envy !! Great spot, Willpar :).

I've been seeing few blackbirds around the area, but they never came to my garden. Until this morning when 2 of them, Mr and Mrs blackbird came for lunch :D . Mr blackbird had few suet pellets and Mrs blackbird had a nice healthy option, an apple :D . They are so lovely :love:

Feral pigeons.......hoards of'em :( They seem particularly persistent today while I was persistent at frightening them off. They cross the threshold of my tolerance the moment one settles on a hanging feeder. I expect battle to resume tomorrow. :grumpy:
