    Blue tit nesting box

    Personally I would leave it now. I usually empty all my nest boxes in the winter. I think it could be a bit late to start interfering with them now.

    clever Robin

    I saw a blackbird the other week that was hovering like a hummingbird to get grubs from the cracks in the garden wall!!! I don't think the Wren will be very pleased if she sees this going on!!

    Is this normal?

    Ditto. I am green with envy...........I need a new camera!!!!! Anyway, the Mrs Spawk that visits my garden has been nicknamed the Smiling assasin! As she quite often sits on top of my daughters swing for 1-2 hours. She will stay put and let all the little birds feed away happily while she...

    OK OK I'll just have to settle for duck won't I?? I was kinda hoping for something a little more exotic than a duck!! When they poop in the front garden it looks like they are trying to 'whitewash' the path!! The back garden is actually alot bigger than it looks, that was just the lower patio...

    OK here we go, don't know if it is too clear but the birdtable is the dark green one. It is only about 2 foot from the back window! What do you think??

    Does anyone recognise this bird dropping??

    OK, I will take a photo of the exact location of the table (still with poo) and see if you still think it is a duck!! Bear in mind that the back garden is very much enclosed!! I will be back shortly!!

    Also I know it sounds a bit strange but I have studied this 'parcel' closely and it is a 'curl' similar shape to dog 'doings'!!!! And no, my dog can't jump that high!! :-O

    The bird table is about 5 1/2 foot tall and the roof is apex!!! I can't see a duck standing on there!!

    We get the ducks from the river in the front garden (they even knocked me up out of bed one Saturday morning!!!) This 'dropping' is far too firm to have come from them!!! :D

    My father-in-law says it is about the size of an old silver dollar, hope that helps.

    I suppose you could say Urban!! Very close to a river, over my back fence is a large park area lined with lots of large trees. Also not too far away is 'The moss'.

    Does anyone recognise this bird dropping??

    I actually heard an owl on Friday night, Tawny I think from its call. Never heard one before near the house. Also where the bird table is situated we get mice (clearing up the leftover bird seed). I didn't mention the owl earlier as I wanted some guesses first. Never seen a Turkey in the...
