A Goldcrest again this morning, flitting about the berberis on the small plot.

Good going Willpar , you are getting some nice visitors :clap: .
While I was putting the food in the trays this morning, this bluey landed on a coconut nearby and started eating, really close to me :eek:
I didn't want to move not to scare it off, and it stayed there for few minutes eating happily, clearly not seeing me as a threat :D . It was amazing to see it up close :love:

Well spotted on the wren, Greenfinch :wave2:. Haven't seen one for ages.
And your robin is beginning to realise who his friends are :nod:.

Due to the overnight cold I made sure my birds had fresh water in the birdbaths. This proved very popular both for the Sparrows and the Starlings. Every time I looked out the window someone was taking a bath. :cold2:

:confused: Sorry ?? Are you saying that the neighbours also avail themselves of this H2O opportunity, or are you merely anthropomorphosising your sparrows and sturks ??
We are all aware that your estates are vast but honestly :eek: ........

I see my sparrows have switched from seed to suet pellets. Probably a wise move. And my two dunnocks seem to like crushed fat ball As supposed to seed they usually eat.

Its weird, I thought suet pellets are better for this cold weather and will be eaten more, but starlings seem to disagree :eek: . They are eating more mealworm, more than before. Crazy birds :D . Tits love sunflower hearts, blackcap is into suet pellets. Wren and dunnocks are into their little seeds :D
Robin eats everything :laugh:

An invitation was extended to my neighbours regarding free access to the bird bath but I drew the line at nude bathing so they demurred. :nod:
