I had a lovely little wren in my garden today, foraging and exploring :rara: , such a treat to have these cute birds around :love:
Still no sign of blackbirds. I see them in my neighbour's garden, but for some reason they are boycotting mine :cry2:
:blackbird: :blackbird: There you go! Sorry, it's the best I can do at this distance :nod:

Great Spotted Woodpeckers are back. Had two males the other day. Female is also coming to the feeders. Female does look cleaner and tidier than the males.

I have only ever seen Stock Doves at a distance. I would be delighted to get one in the garden. :nod:

For the second time this year I had a visit from a Song Thrush :) . I had put some small pieces of leftover turkey on the bird table which it was enjoying until a Blackbird decided enough was enough and chased it off. :(
