Good spot, and great to have them in the garden. Not been blessed with them in my garden.

I am blessed at the moments with not one, not two but three Nuthatches coming to the feeders. There are two larger ones and a smaller one. Have seen both large in together and a large and smaller in together but not the three together. I wait in anticipation.
Lovely birds to get. I've only ever had one on one occasion. It must have been lost. :(

I am truly being spoilt, have been watching four goldfinches in my hawthorn. I put sunflower hearts and nibbles, plus peanut nibbles in with the starling food, that way it may attract more birds. The most goldfinches i have ever had.

What I am seeing is that the autumn slump in bird numbers in my garden has not yet recovered. Wood Pigeons are strangely absent and there are still only a couple of Blackbirds that are visible at any one time. Overnight temperatures are forecast to drop significantly this week so perhaps they will all start returning.

I have had an increase in wood pigeon numbers. Yesterday i had four at one time in two places. Noticed today that a couple of young ones were eating. Blackbirds i have around three. So not bad for me. Plenty of starlings and sparrows, though i would say starling numbers have dropped. That i don`t mind.

I have plenty of wood pigeons, including young ones :nod: , also collared doves :nod: . Regulars are a couple of GSW as well. I have starlings visiting, but in smaller numbers and not every day, which is unusual :unsure: , there is few blue tits and also great tits as well, and a small flock of sparrows (maybe 10) but they come and go. Not seen one single blackbird anywhere near :confused: . I am really puzzled with that because last year there was few of them coming every day. Oh, almost forgot, I have a couple of jackdaws coming regularly now, they are lovely birds :love:

I saw two Woodies in my neighbours garden this morning but they didn't fence hop to mine :( I have no clue as to why I'm off the flight plan as up until now they have been a permanent fixture on my daily list. :shrug:
