WELCOME BACK TO OUR ‘BIG GARDEN BIRD WATCH’
This week has brought beautiful warm sunshine, all the tree are baring new life bright green leaves are opening and flourishing with one day of heavy rain and hail which was refreshing and well needed for the earth, as the scent of the dry earth as the rain came down hit the senses of sweet mother earth.
WOODLANDS COMING TO LIFE BUDS OPENING & BRIGHT GREEN LEAVES FLOURISHING

But the hanging Nyjer seed feeder is not having so much success with, I think we need a better feeder for the Nyjer seed. with our next RSBP order.
Well today has been a therapeutic, soothing and resting day after a horrendous stressful weekend in A+E. We always love watching and fascinated by our local feathered friends and wildlife. And our local Robins are now enjoying the Coconut Treat as much a the ‘Tit Families (Great, Coal, Blue & Long-Tailed Tits) and Woody Greater Spotted Woodpecker and now Robins.
