I have been sitting in the kitchen for the past hour or so watching the starlings and sparrows scrapping over the mealworm feeder. It is complete mayhem! BR has been dining in the more serene kitchen door terrace restaurant and taking his mealworms to the garden three doors down. I have tried to see...

BR continues to ignore the new waterfall, but the sparrows and starlings (as well as the ferals) are less choosy when it comes to taking a dip. The sparrows are eagerly using the collection of small glass ashtrays and sweet dishes and the starlings will use anything wet. The ferals have taken a liking...

The Rest Of The Birds From This Morning
Apart from the various waterfowl families there were other familiar faces around this morning, including many robins! One of the Mallard families that I didn't film I guess the rest of the brood weren't as lucky as these two... I left these off my earlier 'coot thread'...

Summer MUST Be Here...
...because BR is showing off for the camera in the bath (and out). Yesterday evening I was watering the garden and I filled the various water receptacles with clean water. As soon as I had filled his favourite bowl, BR hopped through the trellis and after his usual jumping about from side to side he...

Some Birds At The Park
And so my morning continued. A short bus ride on the 118 and I was at Ravensbury Park... The first thing I saw was this squirrel chewing on some leaves and stalks. Then there was this individual. Awful photo, but it disappeared as I tried to find a better vantage point. What is it? The twigs...

A Few From The Morning & A Few From The Evening
I didn't see the Peregrine this morning, but I did see a few other faces in the car park at work. I also spotted some LTT's but they were too quick for me to photograph. Now that I know that they are in the area I will be ready for them with any luck when they next appear. A hungry jackdaw...

Upon My Return Home From Work
There was quite a bit of activity in the garden when I arrived home just after 6pm today. The only absentee was BR, who was off in the distance doing a spot of territorial singing in the late afternoon sunshine. He joined me some time later. Mrs BR deciding which bath to use I believe we...

Morning walk around Marbury Park/Neumann's Flash
Up before the Larks this morning so headed off for a three hour walk around Marbury Park Woods and Budworth Mere, starting at Neumann's Flash, Cheshire. The sky was pretty grey for most part although I did see blue sky for 10 minutes to take shots of a bare tree trunk and then a flowering Cherry...
