The house next door has been empty for a couple of years. Finally it has been sold. They are now tidying up the garden. To my great joy. They have removed a tree which was growing right next to a corner of my house. I am sure the roots must have been penetrating my foundations. Their garden is almost like a small orchard. Very condusive to bird life. I am just hoping that they appreciate birds, whoever moves in.

Robin, Starling, Blue tit, Great tit & Collared Dove on the feeders this morning. Which all need replenishing.

Having just returned from Ireland, ''my'' garden birds haven't been fed for a week. Feeling guilty, I've cleaned and replenished the feeders last night and this morning I seem to have been forgiven!

I've head Blue tit, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Starlings, and Collared doves so far. Hopefuly the twittering will spread...''the café down the road has re-opened'' !!!!!

I never EVER get any Finches on my feeders, although I do hear Greenfinches in the neighbouring gardens. A GSW comes as far as next doors tree. But has never, as far as I have seen, come to my feeders.

I never seem to attract any Finches either, they just completely blank my garden for some reason. In the last 12 months or so i have only had very breif visits from a single female Greenfinch back in march and a juvunile Goldfinch about 2 months ago, both visited once and never returned!!.
Birds i have seen in my garden recently have been

House Sparrows
Starlings
Blackbirds
Dunnock
Wren
Robins
Blue Tit
Coal Tit
Great Tit
Long Tailed Tit
Wood Pigeon
Collard Dove
Feral Pigeon, a single bird visits daily
Magpie
Also just in the last week or 2 i am getting a daily visit from a Song Thrush.

It is now dark outside in the garden. This is the time when all the local Carrion Crow population seems to descend on next doors tree. Noisily arguing about 'who' is going to roost on 'which' branch. This is a nightly ritual.
