Garden birds and a little friend 01/05/2021

Post by mickfgr2 » Sat May 01, 2021 6:38 pm

I had my second covid jab this morning so while waiting for the slight head ache to wear of i decided i would break out the camera and take a few shots of the birds using the feeders, using the car as a makeshift hide.
these are just a few of the resulting shots, i hope you enjoy looking.

For months I couldn't work out what was causing small holes in my garden. A couple of weeks ago the mystery was solved whan a field mouse appeared to grab seeds under the feeder. Looks like you have a similar opportunist. Nice shots, Mick.

Lots of Goldfinches in my garden too. The downside are the pigeons waiting for the dropped seeds of course. I paved the area underneath the feeders, because the pigeons were ruining the lawn!. Lovely pictures!.
