where have all the berries gone?
Two days before BGBW there were 42 thrushes taking all the berries from one tree in the garden, and several smaller bushes growing against the wall.When the big day arrived there was hardly a berry to be seen anywhere so inevitably no birds, oh well !

Snow on the way....
Well, it would seem the birds know the weather is about to change. Yesterday & this morning has just been a huge feeding frenzy in my garden with seed & mealworms going down a treat! The blackbirds & sparrows are enjoying a nice long drink along with a lovely, if not cold shower in the...

lack of wild bird sightings
We also live facing open farmed countryside . We thought that when moving here 5 years ago the area would provide us with views of many wild birds, but this has proved to be the opposite. In the city of Nottingham the gardens have wild birds, foxes and even squirrels. Here we don't see any sparrows...

Siskins in the BGBW today
Hello everyone What a fantastic afternoon I have had today compared to yesterday. Our garden has been buzzing with activity. The birds came at regular intervals to gorge on the seeds and fat balls that we had placed outside for them. Perhaps it was the cold weather that made them more hungry than...

Black cap - new arrival or over-wintering?

Garden Bird Watch - Robin is in charge
The robin took charge of the new feeder and patrolled between feeders on 2 trees chasing away the blue tits and great tits. However when the long tailed tits arrived he did not chase them - are they too aggressive for him? I have a pheasant who also patrols the garden - another appeared last week but...

This is my first birdwatch survey - it was good to actually sit down for an hour with the focus on the birds. I haven't been in this house for long either. It's near a stream and I was hoping to see the moorhens again but no luck. Maybe they only come in the garden looking for food when it's...
