In the garden

I saw this bird in the garden this morning.  I didn't know what it was but looked it up on Google.  I hope it comes back!

Thanks Jan, do you have any unusual birds in your garden?

These birds are regular visitors to my garden in the summer time.

Only when it's cold  Laughing  Laughing

We have two families of Blue Tits constantly feeding on the fat blocks,
A Magpie keeps coming down after them, I have to chase it away, I think the Blue Tits are too fast for the Magpie. We have lots of different species visiting the bird table.

I have also spotted a strange bird which keeps flying in and out of my large conifer tree, I have my camera ready to try and take a photo of it, don't know what it is yet.

We have tits in our garden and their young.  

Here is some information about other tits including the great one!

Good link that,
I have just been out and filled up all the bird feeders,
They don't half eat quick.

good on you Pedro
this strange weather we have been experiencing of late
must be very troublesome for all of our natural wildlife
its comforting to know there are caring people out there
like yourself and others who are assisting them.

Not in my garden, but nature related! I was surprised at how close it let me get to it!

My husband has just seen what we think is a goldfinch flying under the eaves probably looking for insects.  It had a red face and yellow on the wings.  I wish I could have taken a photo of it!

Yes they are Goldfinches, the one on the right is the male the diffrence between the two is that the males red face extends slightly behind the eye.
they love dandelion seeds, most tree seeds and niger seeds also sunflower hearts

Starling Mojo. If you go to Old Swan's Tesco store, you'll be quite surprised at how near they come to you in the car park.

I saw a Kestral sitting on our back garden fence this morning, I was so made up to see it as I hadn't seen one before.  I do hope he comes back soon!

They're becoming quite rare now,though nobody seems to know why they're numbers have dropped so dramatically!
Barbie

Reasons given, true or not, for the disappearance of the sparrow include Magpies killing them and stealing their eggs to eat, the demise of the hedgerows which sparrow like to dwell in , East Anglia was a big culprit here and have decided to start putting them back as mammels such as the door mouse who also inhabited in the hedgerows have also decreased in numbers.  
Well it was what I was taught in geography a few years back.

I hate magpies we had two on the back garden fence with a neighbour's cat in between them.  They were trying to annoy him!
Barbie

Yeah, I have one here that shouts at my cat. Where I work, the magpies chase and kill the squirrels.
