I have a sparrow hawk that likes to hunt and eat in my back garden.

They are awesome birds, but are the problem for gardens with feeders as they tend to treat them as their restaurants :(

What I saw today: a wood pigeon eating happily from the ground tray, magpie comes along and wants to eat from the tray too but woody is not moving. Magpie was circling and trying to get woody to move unsuccessfully, when at the end it pulled on a woody's tail feathers and flew off :eek: leving woody looking really shocked :laugh: . Birds are crazy :nod:

2 nuthatch today.

I haven't seen them for a while after removing their favourite feeders because of cat problems.

It’s lovely to see little house sparrows bathing. :)

Am pretty sure that i have a black redstart again this year. I disturbed it out in the carpark and it flew onto next doors high wall. Have put out some live mealworms for it to see if i can get a video.

I look forward to seeing that if you're lucky.

Well i sort of got lucky. I had to video it through the kitchen window, so looks a bit foggy. But there is better news, i may have two, unless the other is a robin. But there were two together this afternoon.
