Hi Butterfly. Could be that the sticks got brittle over the years and it just collapsed.
It might be Willpar, it must be some sort of an accident surely :shrug:

Re: MAGPIES

There was a magpie nest high up in the tree right across the street that I could see from my living room window, in the winter months that is, when there is no leaves. I've seen youngsters fledging and creating a circus nearby every year. I can't remember when it was the first time that I spotted th...

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

My bird visits have dropped off again. Even the usual suspects seem to be fewer in number. I may have had a Sprawk visit to scare them off but I didn't see it. :( Probably Sprawk JS, they do have that effect :sofa: If it knows there is a good source of food butterfly, it could well return. I have h...

Good spot Butterfly. They are in my town centre but rarely come out to see us all in the housing estates.
That's why I was surprised to see it in my garden JS :D , I always see them only in the town centre and car parks. I just hope its not just one off 🤞

I've been having a bunch of finches in my garden for quite a while now, chaffinches and gold finches that come every day to help themselves to some food. Lovely lively birds :love:

Had another sparrow count as they stayed still long enough. The ones that i could see amounted to thirty. May have been some more within the hedge. But a tidy number all the same.
Oh wow! That's a nice healthy number of sparrows Willpar :clap:

Re: ROBINS

My new Robin is the friendliest creature on this planet! S/he comes to me every time I am putting the food out, and really close, has done from the start, no hesitation. Even makes eye contact :D . This morning, s/he came and had few seeds right next to a couple of guys who are doing some work in my...

There are courses and help groups to help you teach your cat use litter tray. Something that's not pa...
