It is usually Buzzards or Kestrels that the corvids try to see off.

More of what I didn't see today. Swallows and Martins now seem to have disappeared. A bit early. Maybe they know something about the weather.

I saw this little blue tit flapping its wings and hovering around the middle of seed feeder, looked like it was trying to perch in the air, sort of :unsure: , and than I realised it must be used to some other garden seed feeder with more ports in the middle :rofl:

Hi Peregrine, yes this was brought up in the swallows thread. I reckon this year they have left up to three weeks earlier.

Hi Willpar, same here. Been absent for the best part of three weeks, maybe even more.
