Woody update, update.
Hi folks, hope you all had a good weekend. I am pleased to report, the female G S W I mentioned a few weeks back, with the injured leg, appears to be using the leg to some extent now. I also observed her flying off with a beak full of pastry. (her preferred nibbles) Perhaps I misjudged her in saying...

I have just experienced the most wonderful thing about nature. I am sitting by my lounge window and suddenly there's that sickening thud. A young coal tit knocked itself senseless and fell to the ground. Suddenly a parent came to it and started standing on its back twittering like mad. The parent...

Re: RSPB Garden Bird Count
Well I got nearly all of my usuals this morning (just no long tailed tits), and a bird that I have not seen in my garden before. I did not have my camera to hand at first, but my wife got it for me and thankfully it returned so I could take a pic! My list: Blackbird x 2 (1 x male, 1 x female) ...

Big Garden Bird Watch - visitors in the snow
The arrival of the snow entirely changed the dynamics in the garden. The 3 Blackbirds that fed amicably all year suddenly became 9 with much fighting for space on the ground feeders. However, all were displaced when two Fieldfare (first time in the garden) decided to occupy opposite corners of the garden...

I captured this flock of around 50 Fieldfares in my sisters garden in Harlington, Dunstable on 25/01/2013. She called me to say they were there a few days before so I had to go look! Unfortunately, I could not get closer or outside to capture a good shot s

Elastic Band Petition
Hi everyone, There has been countrywide complaints of Royal Mail incorrectly discarding of elastic bands, which harms an abundance of wildlife, particularly Hedgehogs. A lot of people have informed me that their local postal workers have been dropping the elastic bands on the floor, many have even...

Baby bird query
Hello everyone. I know this isn't a pleasant experience, but I came across a dead chick today. I was just interested in knowing what type of bird actually has chicks so late in the year? (I live in London) Thank you :)

Re: Redpoll a first for me
Very lovely birds the Redpolls, I always thought they'd be in much hotter countries and I didn't know they breed here at home in the UK too. Is this normal or a sign of the times .. global warming?

Greetings From Stormy New York City! A couple of ID's needed please! :)
Hi again. Borrowing my friend Sue's laptop for a few minutes. We are in beautiful New York, staying in our Midtown Manhattan hotel. Had a lovely first day today, wandering around our favourite places in the city. We were supposed to see a Broadway show this evening but it was cancelled, as were most...

HELP SAVE SALGADOS
A recent article written by keen birder Frank McClintock..... You may not have heard but unfortunately, the Portuguese government has just given the go-ahead for development totaling 359 hectares all around Salgados (or Pera Marsh as it's known to some), down in the Algarve, an area just as valuable...

Starlings have decended
I just a huge flock of Starlings descend on my feeder this week and I managed to get a few snaps of them. I think they're great birds, I love the oil slick look they have... very hungry birds most of the time though, its a good job I keep a good supply of food to top up for the other birds after...

Some Swallows, Little Grebes and a Frustrated Magpie!
Here's a few more pics I took at Newport Wetlands a few days ago. I didn't see as many birds as I'd expected but I think they must have all been sheltering from the scorching sun that day! It was a lovely day though and I plan to return again soon. A Little Grebe, yes? Baby Grebe...

Swifts under eaves
For at least two years I've had a pair of swifts nesting under the eaves of my home. I'm simply amazed at their ability to fly at speed into a vertical slot no more than 4cm deep. Once in the nest they are silent. At some point in time I'd like to clad the front of my home and this would...

Me Feeding A Family Of Great Tits (as some beady eyes look on!)
I had a lovely afternoon feeding a whole family of Great Tits in St James's Park on Friday, during a few days' stay in London. What a wonderful experience it was to have them constantly flying onto my hands to eat the bits of peanuts and hazelnuts I'd broken into tiny pieces for them. The...
