What A Morning!
It's been quite an interesting morning here in Mitcham. I went out into the garden to refill the feeders and change the bath/drinking water and as a squirrel ran off across the garden roof (having wrecked a feeder!), I was of course met by BR, who followed me around before stopping off in his usual...

I Almost Forgot About This Morning
The Sparrowhawk was back again this morning for breakfast. I am now certain that it has taken the young dunnock that used to irritate Baby R so much. The adult dunnock is still around, but junior has gone (sadly). I checked the feathers from the attack this morning and they were sparrow feathers, quite...

Sparrow jumping for joy and a worn out starling
This was one comical sparrow. He kept jumping up and down. and this poor starling looks worn out, whilst baby waits patiently for that beak full of mealworms.

A few recent pics from my garden
A few pics I've taken in recent weeks of some of my regular garden visitors. I don't know what's happened to the blackbirds and robins though, they seem to have disappeared, which is disappointing. Not many great tits either, although I did see one the other day. I still get lots of greenfinches...

Some Of My Current Regular Garden Visitors
I haven't taken many pics in recent months of the birds that visit my garden, but have started again, and thought I'd post a few. Nothing exciting, I'm afraid. No rare species, but I'm always thrilled to see any birds coming here. They're so wonderful to watch. Sorry the pics aren't...

Unknown small bird
Hi all, these birds have arrived in my garden over the last few days and I have never seen them before, I first thought they could be baby tits but they are the same size as the regular Blue Tits that visit the garden. They also seem to have much longer tails, could they be Long Tailed Tits...

Re: My Winter Garden Birds
Hi Blackbird, My garden also has been a hive of activity during the snowy weather, (very rare for Cornwall) I am convinced that on the rare occasion that I'm not out early enough, the Blackbirds are calling me out to feed them! There are many of them too which is lovely, and also among many others...

Drama at the feeders
Whilst watching the birds on my feeders early one morning I saw this drama unfold, the small birds all of a sudden scattered, hello I think...were's the cat ?......in the blink of an eye a beautiful female sparrow hawk landed on the pergola from which the feeders hang. I dashed to get my camera...

Re: Bird of Prey in Suburbia
John B (not the sloop)
Hi Rachel and welcome to RSPB Community Not a Kestrel I'd have thought. These are predators of open grassland/farmland and tend to stick to voles, invertebrates, and occasionally birds up to House Sparrow size. Your visitor was almost certainly a Sparrowhawk, very probably female as a Wood...
