The Day of the Robin

We've added a second feeding station to the garden and hanged a feeder filled with sunflower hearts, but it is the Robins that are hogging the limelight at the moment and this particular one seemed to enjoy it!

Robins don't seem to be very difficult to attract to the garden. They mostly eat mealworm from the hanging coconut and also fine blended bread, which we put out on the ground. Occasionally they go for the fat balls as well.

This week we also saw a couple of buzzards patrolling the skies above, you always have a good chance of seeing them on clear days.  I love the sound that these birds of prey make, if your ever out and about and hear this, you know one is close by.  

There was a flock of gulls hanging around as well but I'll be honest I haven't a clue what was going on here! Not sure if it had anything to do with the buzzards being about or if they just fancied a gathering!

Elsewhere the Niger seeds have yet to be touched, the jackdaws are so heavy that they keep turning the coconut feeder around and we're still waiting for somebody to move into the bird box in the tree!
