Fieldfares

A mixed flock of a couple of starlings, a handfull of sparrows and half a dozen fieldfares in the garden, they didn't travel far - spotted them demolishing a decorative berry bush around the corner a few hours later.

Never seen them as garden birds before. (Tray of sunflower seeds, suet and raisins was put out under the gazebo to stop the snow burying it before the birds got to it may have helped more than the resident blackbirds)

It's March 15th and the first osprey arrived right on time. :D And now for 6 months of incessant kip-kip-kip calls. :roll:

We might (possibly) be done with the gulls for this winter! :bounce:

This is a Good Thing - mainly because some idiot is feeding the blighters - right next to my garden - the birds are dropping soggy bread in my garden (trigger (someone else's) cats eating mouldy bread and getting diarrhoea) and since we have 3 doz or more black-headed gulls wheeling over our house/car guess what I get to wash off my windows EVERY WEEK EACH WINTER? (And off the carpet last week? :cry: )

The birds go off a distance to breed or want to feed their young something more nutritious than stale bread.
