Re: PIED WAGTAILS

Not a great picture because it was dark and on my phone but I parked by a tree at the supermarket this week and could hear a lot of twittering and looked up to see the tree was rammed with wagtails. I've never seen that before. I only ever see them on their own walking around. https://i.imgur.com/78...

Re: Project P

100% agree with a camera on it. I think you'll get a lot of action.

Re: Project P

Fabulous. :clap:

I love how it has different levels for a big variety of species that like different water depths/temps. I'm sure you'll also get bathing birds and drinking mammals too. That's exactly what I'd have if I had a garden!

Looking forward to seeing how it flourishes.

Re: FROGS

Lots of frogspawn in my mums pond this weekend. Can't spot the frogs but it was a cold day so they were probably at the bottom in the warm.

Re: My new bird feeder..

Nice.
That should work really well once they're used to it because they've got foliage nearby they can hide in the check out the area before going in and scarper in to if necessary. Hopefully they'll be on it soon.

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

Thanks JS.

Judging by what's in the area I think a dove seems more likely. I know they fly them out of the nest and drop them at random, just 'luck' to have landed where it was.

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

This is a bit plain and non-descript but I saw it under the hedge next to my parking space tonight.

Any idea what it's from? It's about an inch (3cm) across, maybe a tad more.

Re: Big Bluebird

Take a picture of the bird. We don't have bluebirds in the UK. You could try putting something on the windowsill that they can't walk on. You could open the window but put a net across it so nothing can come in but you still get a breeze. But ultimately you won't be able to get rid of them from your...
