I'm a complete and utter addict when it comes to wild birds visiting my garden.
I just can't get enough.
I have three feeding stations dotted around my house and I currently buy 35 kilo's of seed ever few weeks!
It costs a fortune, but I think it's worth it.
When we first arrived back to this house from our expat travels, I was really worried because I hardly ever saw a wild bird in the garden.
But as they say "if you build it... they will come" and they certainly did.
As a rough guide at the moment I have five doves visiting every day
(I have no idea who they belong to... there were seven, but I prefer not to think about where the other two have gone) four Great Spotted Woodpeckers, four Robins, a flock of somewhere between 20 and 30 Goldfinches, a few Green finches and possibly a dozen or so Chaffinches, masses of Blue Tits, Great Tits, Coal Tits and at least 15 Wood Pigeons.
Oh and I mustn't forget the two crazy Crows that had taken a complete obsession to my garden mirror. I decided to take the mirror away thinking I was doing the best for them, but now they are attacking the patio windows to my dining room.
I first thought someone was knocking at the door... and couldn't work it out what was going on.
I'll try to get a photo of them because it really is quite a sight... as is my paving now with poop pebble dashing!
They've even moved plant pots to get nearer!
This week I've included two photos.
It's been the RSPB's National Nest Box week,
So I thought I'd include the photo below.
It's another favourite of mine.
He seems to like the new place... let's hope the Misses does too!
Why not nip across and see lots more photos by clicking on the links above.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and I hope to see you again soon
