    Just landed

    We had a couple of Yellowhammers around that afternoon, this one landed just as I was looking for something else, right in line with my camera LOL

    In the grass beside the track where the Skylark was enjoying his bath, was a Yellowhammer, I'm sure he was wondering what was going on. It had been a while since I'd seen them on the patch, so that day was sure turning into a red letter day LOL I've a feeling they may be recovering from the...

    What a thrill it was to see a Yellowhammer after such a long time; think it was way back in May last year since one had visited the Mause feeders. Didn't give much of a view though, did he LOL Saturday Fun

    Christmas birds - Yellowhammer

    I've finally reached the end of my 2023 posts. Here are three who visited my feeders (including extra sheaves of oats and home-made fatballs and stuffed coconuts) on Christmas Eve. There were a few other species visiting as well through the winter - the occasional Willow Tit, some Bullfinches...

    It's only a paper sun

    or moon, or actually a light from a neighbor's house, but I quite liked the illusion. We're only just now (end of February) getting direct sunlight back in the feeder area in our garden. We used to get it sooner, but the the neighbor south of us divided their property and put up a big new house...

    Yellowhammers are flourishing in New Zealand. They were introduced from Britain by Acclimatisation Societies between 1865 and 1879.

    Really pleasing

    It was such a pleasure to see that Yellowhammers were making regular visits to the feeders at the Mause feeding station. I've seen them on tables before, but not noticed any on a tube feeder, at least not that I can remember.

    Among the stingers!

    Sometime in April I thought I caught sight of a flash of yellow near the feeders but it was so quick I really wasn't sure what it was. A few days later and the mystery was solved when this Yellowhammer suddenly showed himself and stopped to feed on the fallen seed. He was in amongst the...

    The most unique perch for a bird.

    So often a very wary species, this bird allowed closer approach than usual, adjacent to a busy footpath.
