More blackbirds than you can bake in a pie!

Posted Sunday 20th January 2013 at 17:05 by Rick and Elis
I woke up this morning to the sound of a Blackbird chacking outside in the garden. As I lay in my warm and cosy bed I began to get pangs of guilt. It was as though the bird was chiding me for my selfishness, goading me into action. Wearily I arose from my pit, bracing myself as I did so against the cold air, shivering slightly I waddled over to the window and pulled back a corner of the curtain. There, spread out across the lawn like a box of chocolate biscuits spilled on a fluffy white carpet were...

REMEMBER THE WATER FOLKS!


Water is as important, if not more so, when everything is frozen. This Blackbird drank a good amount from this water bowl provided.

A very thin layer of ice had formed on this water during the day, it was enough to support the weight of the dove, but it was still able to peck a small hole through it. Pigeons and doves are able to drink without raising their heads to swallow. This bird made full use of this ability by puncturing a small...

Dining With My Best Friends

I’m referring to my first visitors in the morning and my last visitors in the evening. Cast to a predominance of relative gloom, ever since autumn—when time fell back—I’ve only had the chance to watch them eat dinner on Saturdays, Sundays,...

Some more Spoon-billed Sandpiper pictures.

It's January!

Posted Friday 11th January 2013 at 05:13 by BoatBirder
How do I know it's January? After returning from the volunteers AGM at Brandon Marsh yesterday, where I had the briefest glimpse of my first Bittern of 2013, the wife had me out on the bikes later in the afternoon.
