Its a real shame Willpar, its a GSW couple that visited every day, male and female, it might even be a fledgling that got killed, there was a lot of down and small feathers :(
It's always a bit distressing when you lose what you consider to be one of "your" birds :weep: . If it was a Sprawk that killed it I'm surprised you had a body to find. :(

It wasn't a body Jack, just the feathers :( , that makes me think it might have been a Sprawk :(. Plus, they (Mrs and Mrs GSW) don't hang around anywhere else but the hanging suet candle feeder, never on the ground. It would have been very hard for a cat to get them on a hanging feeder, but not so impossible for Sprawk I guess :(

Greenfinch pair back after a lengthy absence. Nuthatch has also graced me a few times recently with its presence. Pair Stock Doves also regular visitors.

Only the one, but a newly fledged starling in the garden today. Not a good flyer.

Aww it must be a late clutch, I'm guessing low ranking one :( . Hopefully it will improve 🙏

My resident blackbird, who comes to my garden every day, brought his beautiful well fed fledgling today and was feeding it mealworms :blackbird: :love:
